The Solar Eclipse from outer Space

Watch the moon’s shadow from the solar eclipse, move from coast to coast in this latest geocolor animation from GOES-16…

This animation comes to us courtesy of GOES-16’s Advanced Baseline Imager, which can capture an image of the continental United States every 5 minutes! In addition to images of fantastic phenomena like solar eclipses, GOES-16 provides continuous imagery and atmospheric measurements of Earth’s Western Hemisphere.  [Youtube]
