"A time lapse made from a Japanese weather satellite’s images shows the shadow the moon casts on the Earth when it blocks out the sun.In March 2016, a total solar eclipse passed over Indonesia and through the Pacific Ocean. A Japanese weather satellite known as Himawari-8 captured it all. This time lapse, produced by NASA from the footage, is what a total solar eclipse looks like from space. The satellite, which remains stationary over a single spot 22,000 miles above the Earth, captured the light of a full day. In the video, you can see the sun rising on the right and setting on the left, like a hand moving across a face. The sun gets chased by sunglint. This ghostlike aura is the spot where the sun reflects off the water at the same angle the satellite is facing."
