The recent solar eclipse was a fascinating event that many people around the planet observed from the ground.
However, NASA has recently released an incredible view of the eclipse blacking out a portion of Earth as viewed from space as reported by GeoBeats News:
On March 9, the moon passed before the sun, creating full solar eclipse. While many watched the crossing of the celestial bodies from the ground, the Deep Space Climate Observatory, or DSCOVR, was watching from above. NASA has put together a video showing what the event looked like from space.
The animation is made up of 13 photos taken by the Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera. Linked together, the images show the moon casting its shadow on Earth.
The spot of darkness first appears over the Indian Ocean then moves over Indonesia, Australia, and finally the Oceanic islands of Melanesia, Micronesia, and Polynesia.
In making the video, DISCOVR certainly lived up to its mission, which is, “…to provide a distinct perspective on our planet.”
