A Collection of Solar Eclipse Photography

A Collection of Solar Eclipse Photography

On August 21st, 2017, the people across North America were able to witness a total solar eclipse from Pacific to Atlantic coasts. In other countries, only a partial eclipse was visible. The last time when a total solar eclipse was visible in the entire United States was on June 8, 1918. It was amazing to see how people coming together to carefully look at our beloved moon crossing the sun to turn day into darkness. It was great to see so many of us taking the time to create and make for this special day. We have selected a few pictures that really caught our attention, hope you will like them.

My Favourite

Photo by @dave.krugman Today’s #SolarEclipse traced its path of totality — the geographic line along which the sun is entirely blocked from view by the moon — across the United States, from the woods of Oregon to the fields of South Carolina. Its rarity inspired millions to turn their eyes and lenses skyward, including New York-based photographer Dave Krugman (@dave.krugman), who made a trek to Nashville, Tennessee, to see this first total solar eclipse in the US in 38 years. “This was a flashpoint moment I didn’t want to miss,” says Dave. “Seeing the sky go dark and a ring of fire suddenly appear was an extraordinary experience. The light was eerie, otherworldly. It’s surely a moment I’ll never forget.” 🌞🌝 Watch our Instagram story featuring @billnye to see scenes and views of the solar eclipse across the US. 😎

In this video captured at 1,500 frames per second with a high-speed camera, the International Space Station (@ISS), with a crew of six onboard, is seen in silhouette as it transits the sun at roughly five miles per second during a partial solar eclipse, Monday, Aug. 21, 2017 near Banner, Wyoming. Onboard as part of the crew are: NASA astronauts Peggy Whitson, Jack Fischer (@Astro2Fish), and Randy Bresnik (@AstroKomrade); Russian cosmonauts Fyodor Yurchikhin and Sergey Ryazanskiy (@SergeyISS); and ESA (@EuropeanSpaceAgency) astronaut Paolo Nespoli (@Astro_Paolo). A total solar eclipse swept across a narrow portion of the contiguous United States from Lincoln Beach, Oregon to Charleston, South Carolina. A partial solar eclipse was visible across the entire North American continent along with parts of South America, Africa, and Europe.
