American astronaut Christopher Cassidy photographed from the International space station, a shadow on the earth’s surface from the annular solar Eclipse.
As previously reported by the Moscow planetarium, annular solar Eclipse, when the Moon completely covers the Sun, could watch Sunday in the Central African Republic, Congo and Ethiopia, to the South of Pakistan and Northern India, and China. With Russia it was possible to see only a partial Eclipse, when the Moon covers the Sun completely.
a Super cool view of the Annular Solar Eclipse which passed by our starboard side as we flew over China this morning. A pretty neat way to wake up on Father's Day morning! Hoping all of the dads in the world have a wonderful day! #Eclipse #FathersDay #HappyFathersDay2020 pic.twitter.com/vJx5yOFAcb— Chris Cassidy (@Astro_SEAL) June 21, 2020
"Very cool views of the annular solar Eclipse that took place on the starboard side (the station) when we flew over China this morning" – Cassidy wrote on his Twitter page.
He has published four images showing the shadow on the earth’s surface from solar Eclipse.
Now work on the ISS Russian cosmonauts Anatoly Ivanishin and Ivan Wagner and American astronauts Cassidy, Douglas Hurley and Robert Behnken.
