While residents of islands and nations in the Western Pacific looked up in the early morning hours of March 9 to observe a total eclipse of the sun, the Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) mission looked down from space and captured the large shadow of the moon marching across Earth’s sunlit face. This 5-second animation was assembled from 13 images - it goes fast so you may want to pause it at 4 seconds and rewind. It's worth it. NASA @NASA
