Nasa probe snaps epic picture from its unique vantage point
A solar eclipse is an amazing sight to behold.
Unfortunately, there are many obstacles on Earth that can get in the way. like a cloudy day or, you know, the night.
But not in space. As a result, a NASA probe was able to take this week's amazing collection of photos of a partial solar eclipse.
The moon was captured yesterday by the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) of the space agency.
The transit started at 05:20 BST and lasted for about 35 minutes.
At its peak, the moon covered 67 per cent of our parent star’s fiery surface.
The images are so clear, that bumps and ridges can be seen on the moon’s surface as it passed in front of the sun.
When the moon crosses between the sun and the earth and obscures the sun, a solar eclipse happens.
Partial solar eclipses, yearly solar eclipses, and complete solar eclipses are the three different types of solar eclipses.
When the sun, moon, and earth are all in a straight line, there will be a total solar eclipse.
A total solar eclipse entirely blocks out the sun, making the sky appear pitch-black and nighttime-like.
