Here’s what the eclipse looked like from the moon

Can you possibly stomach any more eclipse pictures? No? We get it, but what if we told you there were pictures you hadn’t seen taken from lunar orbit?  During the 21 August event, NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter used a system of three cameras to photograph the moon’s shadow as it passed near Nashville, ASU Now reports. Starting at 2:25:30 p.m., the orbiter began capturing the image, constructing it line by line for 18 seconds until all 52,224 lines were recorded to create the black-and-white image seen above.
