Even if the part that would reflect the sun wasn't so tiny ( we speak about millions of kilometers here) the light of the sun would crush the reflection.I undertstand the un behind the people in the pic creates a shadow or them to go black .....but the sun wasnt behind the moon the whole time so whats the point of this ? after the "moon" went by why didnt the suns light reflect off it ? like it does every day ....day or night
Take a candle, light it. In a dark room, you can see it quite bright. Put a spot behind or near it toward you head. The light of the spot make you unable to see the flame.
It's the same thing here : it's not a photo of the sun, it's a HEAVY filtered photo of the sun...
