A thin slice of South America got treated to a complete solar eclipse on Monday. A large portion of the world had the option to enjoy the activity through livestreams, yet a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) satellite got a totally different perspective on the occasion.
While people were taking a gander at the sun (while practicing solar safety precautions), the Goes-East satellite kept its eyes on Earth and saw the moon’s shadow getting across seas and land.
The NOAA Satellites Twitter account shared an eclipse GIF. It’s a brilliant whirl of blue water, brown and green land, white clouds and the dark shadow motion.
The satellite pictures feature the quantity of clouds in the review region, which means not every person got an clear gander at the occasion. “Although it was mainly visible from Earth in parts of South America, Goes East had a perfect view of the moon’s shadow moving across the Earth,” NOAA composed.
You can get some more traditional film of the eclipse by returning to a portion of the natural livestreams from Monday. This should last you. The next total solar eclipse – which will be noticeable in Antarctica – won’t go along until December 2021.
