Though the only total solar eclipse of 2016 was seen by the residents of islands and nations in the Western Pacific in the early morning hours on March 9, 2016, Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) captured the shadow of the Moon marching across Earth’s sunlit face.
The animation above was assembled from 13 images acquired by NASA’s Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera (EPIC), a four-megapixel charge-coupled device (CCD) and Cassegrain telescope on the DSCOVR satellite.
Check Out the Video. Truly Mesmerizing !!
