PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) — If you could not make it outside for Monday’s solar eclipse, fear not. NASA’s got you covered.
NASA followed the totality of the eclipse across the country from a series of 50 cameras attached to balloons at elevations of up to 100,000 feet.
Astronauts aboard the International Space Station as well as 11 spacecraft also provided unique perspectives of the eclipse. One such perspective was spotting the International Space Station cross in front of the sun.
Others captured by NASA photographers showed the progression of the eclipse.
