NASA shares EPIC shot of the Moon's shadow during the June eclipse, take a look

Jul 22, 2021 10:26 IST | By Editorji News Desk

NASA’s Earth imaging camera set in the space agency's Deep Space Climate Observatory satellite has captured a stunning image of the Earth during the annular solar eclipse that was seen over the northern hemisphere on June 10.

In the photo shared by NASA, the shadow cast by the moon shows up as an odd and unsettling blurry brown spot over the north polar region. The image was taken from nearly a million miles away from Earth, where the satellite hangs.

While science tells us that the Moon blocks the Sun during a solar eclipse, and casts a shadow on the Earth, some of these shadows can look fascinating from Space. 

Scientists at NASA say, taking images of the sunlit half of Earth from a distance four times further than the Moon’s orbit never ceases to amaze.
