Breathtaking image of a solar eclipse, as seen from space [Amazing Photo of the Day]September 21, 2012 4 Email article | Print article
A solar eclipse is when the Moon passes between the Earth and the Sun, thus “eclipsing” the Sun. Because of how awesome eclipses are, the phenomenon, whenever it happens, is watched by many people around the world. While seeing an eclipse from Earth is cool, it doesn’t even come close to how breathtaking the view is from space. Or, at least how one digital artist perceives it to be.
As much as I wish otherwise, I don’t have a photo of a real solar eclipse as seen from space. However, I do have some digital art that looks like a solar eclipse as seen from space. Check it out:
It may not be real but, damn, it looks awesome.
