Here’s How the Solar Eclipse Looked From Space

NASA and other agencies have been posting up photographs and videos of yesterday’s total solar eclipse.
As the sky darkened across the United States yesterday, millions of people, including President Donald Trump and his family, turned out to watch.
While undeniably impressive from the ground, the spectacle was also filmed from far above.
This monochrome footage was recorded by the GOES-16 satellite which was launched in November:
