Since we weren't able to see the solar eclipse over the weekend(only the east coast had a brief sighting) we found new images showing the eclipse in motion. The image shows the shadow of the moon passing over the Earth's surface.
The animation was made possible by placing various images together from a weather satellite. Since the satellite is in orbit over Africa it was able to capture the eclipse’s umbra, the darkest and most central portion of the moon’s shadow.
The images were taken once every 15 minutes from 5:45 to 9:30am Eastern time on November 3, as the shadow passed over the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Africa.
For a more zoomed-out perspective from the same satellite, check out this visualization, which also uses images from Meteosat-10:Discovermagazine.com
