  • NASA catches Solar Eclipse in a Video Clip

NASA has caught the total solar eclipse which took place awhile ago in the form of a video clip.

NASA has released a video clip of the solar eclipse which took place some time ago for space geeks and freaks who are in the United States.

Since they didn’t get a chance to witness the solar eclipse, they will be flocking online to see this rare vision of a total solar eclipse. The clip lasts four minutes and shows the eclipse in its totality. 

So many people in the Pacific Region got to see the solar eclipse. As the moon cast its shadow between the sun and the earth, the result was a casting of the darkness over the entire region.

Indonesia was the place where the solar eclipse was most pronounced. Those who didn’t get to see the eclipse can watch it on the YouTube video posted by NASA.

The moon stayed a full four minutes in front of the sun before moving on in its path. One of the enthusiasts who was present in person to view the event said that she had seen five such eclipses before in her life. 

When the moon came in front of the sun, there was a strange sort of peace that descended on the scene. For a few minutes it was a case of pindrop silence.

It was a mystical magical experience. While the people gathered to witness the event cheered at the outset, they became eerily quiet when the real thing began.

Finally, when it was almost over, they began the rousing applause. The clapping just never stopped and kept going on and on. Many had taken high resolution pics of the event with their cameras that they had with them. 

Even the passengers aboard the Alaska Air flight 870 got a chance to see the eclipse. They were many thousands of feet up in the air. The flight was from Anchorage to Hawaii.

The flight was intentionally delayed so that the passengers would get a chance to see the eclipse in the middle of their journey.

While change in flight plans are rare, this time around the delay was intentional and meant for the sake of the passionate passengers who wanted to view the eclipse.
