The shadow of the Moon over the Arctic during the solar eclipse

NASA has shared an incredible image of the Moon’s shadow over the Arctic during the solar eclipse that took place on June 10 and was visible mainly at the North Pole.

The snapshot is so curious that our celestial satellite looks like a blob on a page . The image, published on Wednesday, was taken precisely on the day of the solar eclipse and shows an ‘epic’ view of the moon’s shadow during this astronomical event, which was witnessed by millions of people around the world.

” Taking images of the sunlit half of the Earth from a distance four times the orbit of the Moon never fails to offer surprises , such as the Moon occasionally entering our field of view or the Moon casting shadows on the Earth ” says Adam Szabo. NASA’s DSCOVR project scientist in a statement.

This particular photo was taken by the US space agency’s Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera (EPIC), a camera and telescope on NOAA’s Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) Satellite. This satellite is orbiting the L1 Lagrange point , which “offers an uninterrupted view of the sun and currently houses the SOHO satellite of the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory”, added from NASA.

During the partial solar eclipse, viewers in Russia and Canada observed a rare type of solar eclipse that created a ‘ring of fire’ , casting a dramatic shadow over these areas. The ‘ring of fire’ solar eclipse occurs when the Moon is at its furthest point from Earth and is therefore too far away to completely cover the sun, leaving a ring of light.
