NASA captures partial solar eclipse from space

While eclipse shots always look interesting, if you have seen one you have pretty much seen them all… until now.

NASA’s SDO (Solar Dynamics Observatory) captured these incredible images as their camera was focused on the Sun in a wavelength of extreme ultraviolet light – when the dark Moon passed in front.

The large arcing solar flare that can be seen on the left of the Sun is 860,000 miles and could be as hot as 20 million degrees Celsius.
