Photographing a solar eclipse from space

There’s a little black spot from the Sun today…


PetaPixel writes,

[NASA satellite] DSCOVR snapped its first photo in July 2015, so this view of a total solar eclipse is the first of its kind. Since the DSCOVR has a fixed view of Earth as it rotates on its axis, this is the first time the shadow of an entire eclipse has been documented in a series of photos.

In August 2015, DSCOVR also captured an amazing series of images showing the moon passing across the face of the Earth.
