Amazing video shows the moon spinning by the sun in a super-fast speeded up solar eclipse

The ultimate photobomb! Amazing video captured by a space satellite shows Earth’s moon passing through the sun. The dark silhouette blocks the sun’s rays and creates a shadow.

  • An eclipse captured by a satellite that observed the sun from space was captured by a satellite.
  • This clip shows the sun and moon shining by, but the video has been sped up
  • The event was captured by the sun-observing GOES satellite with its SUVI instrument (Solar Ultraviolet Imager), on November 23

The ultimate photobomb was performed by the moon when it moved infront of the sun and created a shadowy silhouette that blocked the sun’s glaring rays.

The sun-observing GOES satellite with its SUVI instrument (Solar Ultraviolet Imager), captured the cosmic show while observing sun’s hot outer and corona. 

The satellite records solar emissions as warning signs that solar flares are coming. A filament was captured at the pole near the northwestern leg.

“We might still see isolated periods geomagnetic storming (G1 (minor),) due to the influence by high-speed solar winds from a coronalhole,’ EarthSky reports.

The moon moved infront of the sun blocking its blazing surface with a dark silhouette in an eclipse that was only visible from space.

On November 23, the moon cast a silhouette from 10:30 to 12:00 UTC.

Twitter users shared an image showing the moon blocking some of the sunlight. One user wrote that it looked like the moon was trying to eat the sun. 

Solar emissions observations aid in early detection of solar flares, coronal masses ejections (CMEs), or other phenomena that can impact the geospace environment.

SUVI receives an early warning when it observes a sunspot. This occurs at least 15 hours before Earth experiences the CME.

The Moon Seemed To Come Out Of Nowhere.  An Image Of The Moon Blocking Part Of The Sun Was Shared On Twitter, Where One User Said, 'The Moon Looks Like It Is Taking A Bite Out Of The Sun'

It seemed like the moon appeared out of nowhere.  Twitter shared an image of the moon blocking a part of the sun. One user commented that the moon looked like it was taking a bite from the sun.

CMEs are large expulsions, of plasma and magnetic field from the sun’s corona.

 They can emit billions of tonnes of coronal material, and have an embedded magnetic field (frozen to flux) that is stronger than the background solar winds interplanetary magnetic field strength (IMF). 

While this eclipse was not seen on Earth, those in the US witnessed a stunning cosmic display of a reddish-hued moon hanging in the dark sky on November 8.

The moon is known as a blood Moon. It occurs when Earth’s shadow covers the moon and blocks all sunlight from reflecting off it. This causes its color to turn coppery red and makes the moon appear dimmer.

Peak totality, the stage of the eclipse when the moon is completely in Earth’s shadow, occurred at 5:00 AM ET.

The large, red moon could be seen above New York City, Washington DC, Virginia, and other areas of the US. It returned to its usual silvery color two hours later.

The Satellite Observes Solar Emissions That Act As Warning Signs Of Solar Flares, Which Can Cause Blackouts On Earth, But The Sun Activity Captured During The Photobombing Is Deemed Low

The satellite detects solar emissions as warning signs for solar flares. These can cause blackouts on Earth. However, the satellite’s photobombing of sun activity is low.

While This Eclipse Was Not Seen On Earth, Those In The Us Witnessed A Stunning Cosmic Display Of A Reddish-Hued Moon Hanging In The Dark Sky On November 8

Although the eclipse was not visible on Earth, the US saw a spectacular cosmic display with a reddish-hued lunar cluster hanging in the dark skies on November 8.

Tuesday’s event marks two blood moons this year. The first was in May, and the next will be March 14, 2025. 

The eclipse was visible in all of North America, including Australia, South America, South America, and eastern Asia.

Skywatchers from Australia and Asia saw it together with their evening moonrise. 

The spectacle was also visible from other parts of North America, in the early morning hours just before the moonset.

It was easily visible from the naked eye, wherever there was clear sky.

The entire eclipse took place over six hours. The moon slowly moved into Earth’s pale outer shadow, the ‘penumbra’, then entered Earth’s darker inner shadow, the ‘umbra’, before reaching totality.

NASA stated that the moon was 242,740 kilometers from Earth during this lunar event, which lasted approximately 90 minutes.
