NASA snaps epic image of an eclipse from space

Solar eclipse happens when the moon passes between sun and earth and blocks it

Its difficult to capture these events from earth, but not so in space

Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) captured the moon passing in front of the sun

The transit started at 05:20 BST and lasted for about 35 minutes.

At its peak, 67 per cent of our parent star’s fiery surface was covered by moon

The images taken by the NASA probe are very clear

Bumps and ridges on the moon’s surface can be seen as it passed in front the sun

It has been identified as part of the Leibnitz and Doerfel mountain ranges.
