Eclipse Day: When It Occurs and How Much Coverage the Shore Will See

Eclipse Day: When It Occurs and How Much Coverage the Shore Will See

Instead of letting everyone in North America get excited about the first total solar eclipse in nearly a century (it was a pretty big deal) the ISS made a decision to steal some of the limelight for itself. But NASA staffers had some of the best seats in the so-called house.

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

Two, even. And on Monday NASA and the European Space Agency deployed their resources on the ground and in space to capture the eclipse, doing so in stunning fashion.

With a crescent-shaped sun as the backdrop, Kowsky managed to shoot the movements of the space station, which appears as a small "H" traveling at 17,500 miles per hour across the face of the eclipsed sun.

Currently, there are six onboard the ISS as part of Expedition 52, including NASA astronauts Peggy Whitson, Jack Fischer, and Randy Bresnik.

Apart from this, Aamir Khan's rockstar avatar with blonde spikes has left us even more excited for the movie to hit screens. The role of the aspiring singer Insu has been played by Zaira Wasim , who earlier was seen alongside Aamir in " Dangal ".

You can see the space station as a small "H" that moves across the field of view.

The International Space Station was caught transiting the sun during Monday's total solar eclipse. The space station crossed the path of the eclipse three times as it orbited above the continental United States at an altitude of 250 miles.

If you missed this week's spectacle, just sit tight: The next USA eclipse is expected in April 2024.

The space station passed in front of the sun during the eclipse, giving some photographers an extraordinary photo opportunity during an already extraordinary event.
