Summary:On March 9, a total solar eclipse was perfectly visible in Indonesia. Alaska, Hawaii, parts of southeast Asia and some of Australia got a partial view. The rest of us, alas, were out of luck. But now you can enjoy the view from another angle — the solar eclipse as seen from space. The Himawari geostationary satellites, operated by Japan's meteorological agency, captured the sight of the moon's shadow traveling across the Earth. Yasuhiko Sumida, a scientist visiting the Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, stitched them together into this video.
