Photo from the 1922 eclipse taken at Lick Observatory

Lick Observatory, The astronomer Arthur Eddington said it was the greatest moment of his life when he measured the image of a star and found that the sun's gravity warped the space through which the light had traveled.  This photo is from the 1922 eclipse where the effect was reconfirmed. (The stars are not visible in this reproduction.  What you see is circles drawn around them.), Credit Line: Lick Observatory Archives, courtesy of AIP Emilio Segrè Visual Archives
