Eclipse from space
ESA astronaut Paolo Nespoli and his five colleagues on the International Space Station where lucky enough to be the only people to view the solar eclipse from space. The astronauts prepared by adding solar filters to their cameras and took pictures of the Moon’s shadow on Earth.
The Space Station does a complete circuit of Earth every 90 minutes so they could see the eclipse and shadow three times.
