While the solar eclipse looked so glorious from the Earth, check out how splendid the shadow passing over the Earth’s surface looked from the space.

As the first solar eclipse of the year, 2020 made all of us gaze (with precautions) at the gleaming sun with joy and surprise, social media was flooded with pictures of the annular eclipse showing the ‘ring of fire’.

A solstice ‘ring of fire’ solar eclipse occurs when the moon gets between Earth and the sun, and the moon casts a shadow over Earth.  Astronauts in the space were lucky to witness the impressive round shadow of the moon over Earth’s surface.

Chris Cassidy, a NASA Astronaut who currently lives and works in the space, shared pictures of the Earth showing the magnificent phenomenon from the space. The space satellites too spotted this round shadow spinning around the earth’s surface.
