Solar Eclipse
21 Aug. 2017

360° Video


This is a 360° view of the eclipse. Use your mouse to drag the view around.

The shadow of the moon darkens the low clouds and hills to the right (west) first. Although this auto-exposure camera doesn't properly show the eclipsed sun itself, you can still get a good feel for how quickly totality comes on.

During totality, Venus is visible to the upper right of the Sun. A plane also flies between Venus and the Sun during the eclipse.
