Astronaut photographed from the ISS the shadow of the Eclipse on Earth

American astronaut Christopher Cassidy photographed from the International space station, a shadow on the earth's surface from the annular solar Eclipse.

As previously reported by the Moscow planetarium, annular solar Eclipse, when the Moon completely covers the Sun, could watch Sunday in the Central African Republic, Congo and Ethiopia, to the South of Pakistan and Northern India, and China. With Russia it was possible to see only a partial Eclipse, when the Moon covers the Sun completely.

"It's very cool views of the annular solar Eclipse that took place on the starboard side (the station) when we flew over China this morning," Cassidy wrote on his Twitter page.

He has published four images showing the shadow on the earth's surface from solar Eclipse.

Now work on the ISS Russian cosmonauts Anatoly Ivanishin and Ivan Wagner and American astronauts Cassidy, Douglas Hurley and Robert Behnken.
