NASA probe snaps an image of a solar eclipse from space

A sungazing spacecraft captured the moon passing in front of the face of the sun Wednesday (June 29).

NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory caught the solar eclipse in action from its unique vantage point in space, the only spot where this eclipse was visible.

“At the peak of the eclipse, the moon covered 67% of the sun, and lunar mountains were backlit by solar fire.”

Bumps can be seen on the surface of the passed satellite, which have been identified as part of the Leibniz and Dörfel mountain ranges.
