Terra Satellite Sees Shadows of Solar Eclipse in the Arctic Ocean

Terra Satellite Views Shadows of Solar Eclipse

NASA’s Terra satellite captured this view of the clouds in the Arctic Ocean during last week’s total solar eclipse.

During the morning of March 20, 2015, a total solar eclipse was visible from parts of Europe, and a partial solar eclipse from northern Africa and northern Asia. NASA’s Terra satellite passed over the Arctic Ocean on March 20 at 10:45 UTC (6:45 a.m. EDT) and captured the eclipse’s shadow over the clouds in the Arctic Ocean.
