OMG This eclipse video is awesome. This GoPro had a better perspective of the Moon’s shadow on the Earth than the International Space Station astronauts!
On Aug. 21st during the Great American Solar Eclipse, the students of Earth to Sky Calculus launched 11 space weather balloons from the path of totality. They aimed to photograph the Moon’s shadow from the stratosphere–and they succeeded. This GoPro video recorded more than 100,000 feet above Earth’s surface shows the inky-black shadow of the Moon darkening a 70-mile-wide patch of Wyoming and Nebraska.
