NASA’s STEREO Spacecraft Gives Gorgeous Video Of Solar Eclipse.
Phil Plait over at Bad Astronomy posted a gorgeous video today of solar eclipse seen from NASA’s STEREO spacecraft.
In a previous post, Plait explained what NASA’s STEREO spacecraft was:
STEREO – SolarTErrestrial RElations Observatory – they traveled in opposite directions, one ahead and the other behind the Earth in its orbit around the Sun. The goal was to get a wide, stereoscopic view of the Sun which would provide 3D information on our star.
