Last Night’s Solar Eclipse Looks Stunning in These Captivating Images
A few hours ago the rare astronomical event that is the total solar eclipse was witnessed in Indonesia, while other parts of Asia experienced a partial eclipse. Because you probably missed it, here’s a quick photo roundup so you can start the day in awe.
The narrow path of our Moon’s shadow-and the total eclipse with it-stretched across 12 Indonesian provinces, crossed three times zones, and could be seen by about 40 million. In other parts of the Indonesian archipelago, and in several Asian countries-such as India, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Singapore-a partial eclipse was visible.
