1 million miles from Earth, the distant DSCOVR satellite, also known as the Deep Space Climate Observatory, recently captured the eerie shadow of the moon over Antarctica.
The fascinating, relatively rare event occurred in the early morning hours of December 4th. The moon moved into a perfect position between the earth and the sun known as a total solar eclipse. NASA posted a picture on Instagram shows the resulting shadow over Antarctica. Astronauts on board the International Space Station (ISS) also discovered the solar eclipse.
