On Monday, April 5, 2021, the Universities Space Research Association NASA published a photo entitled "Colored Einstein Eclipse" as a prestigious Earth Science Picture of the Day, co-authored by Petr Horálek from the Institute of Physics in Opava and prof. Miloslav Druckmüller from the Brno University of Technology. Using modern computational methods of image processing, they tried to "revive" the image of the solar eclipse from May 29, 1919, which led to the confirmation of Einstein's general theory of relativity. Thus, after more than 100 years, people can see for the first time what this phenomenon looked like in colors and what unusual phenomena surrounded the obscured Sun.
