NASA satellite captures total solar eclipse from space
NASA's Terra satellite when it captured this unique view of the earth during a total solar eclipse on August 1, 2008. In the area shown in the image, the sun was completely obscured for about two minutes. As Earth rotated, the shadow moved southeast across the surface. At the same time, the satellite crossed the Arctic with its path nearly perpendicular to the eclipse.
