Breathtaking image of a solar eclipse, as seen from space [Amazing Photo of the Day]

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.

    @Mayank: Glad you agree!
    @kevbo: Glad you like it — you are welcome! Thanks for the suggestion, I’ll keep it in mind.
    @Orson Carte: I’m sorry :-( What happened was when I first came across this image, I thought it was real. After a little bit more digging I discovered it is digital art and the best way I could think to present it is call it an “image” instead of a “photo” in the title. I suppose I could have said “digital art” instead of “image” in the title, but then again hindsight is 20-20.

    So your title should read “Breathtaking image of a solar eclipse as seen from space (but don’t get excited as it’s not a real breathtaking image it’s really just digital art) :-(
