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.
