Millions of people across the United States experienced a total eclipse as the umbra, or moon’s shadow passed over them.

The Moon is seen passing in front of the Sun at the point of the maximum of the partial solar eclipse near Banner, Wyoming on Monday, Aug. 21, 2017. 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.


The International Space Station with a crew of six onboard is seen on the composite image made from seven frames as it transits the Sun at the speed of 5 miles per second during the solar eclipse.
