Unbelievable video, photos show solar eclipse from space


The ISS astronauts had a great view of the moon's shadow.

They were unable to see a total view of the eclipse because the station did not pass through the moon's umbra, according to NASA.

The path of totality stretched from Lincoln Beach, Oregon to Charleston, South Carolina, NASA reports.

NASA photographer Bill Ingalls got the once-in-a-lifetime shots from Northern Cascades National Park in Washington earlier today.


Six people are current aboard the space station, including NASA astronauts Peggy Whitson, Jack Fischer, and Randy Bresnik.

On Monday, Ars writers shared some thoughts about the total solar eclipse that spanned the United States with readers and took some backyard photographs of the event.

Fortunately, there's a space agency for that.
