A Music Video Shot Live During a Total Solar Eclipse

During the total solar eclipse on March 20th, 2015, the Faroese doom metal band Hamferð took the opportunity to shoot a creative live music video for their song “Deyðir Varðar” from a mountain in the Faroe Islands. It’s a 6 minute 36 second video in which the world goes completely dark and the total eclipse can be clearly seen in the background.

Time-Lapse Captures the Two Minutes of Darkness Caused by the Total Solar Eclipse

Here’s a time-lapse showing the total solar eclipse today (March 20th, 2015), as seen by Bjarni Enghamar from the town of Tórshavn in the Faroe Islands (an archipelago found halfway between Norway and Iceland). Midway through the video, the whole landscape is plunged into darkness as the Moon blocks out the Sun for about two minutes.


P.S. Here’s some real time footage of the same eclipse seen above the cloud line from the same islands.

A Lucky Photograph of the Solar Eclipse

Beautiful photo compositions generally require a keen eye and a quick shutter finger, but sometimes luck plays a huge role as well. That’s what happened today for UK-based photographer Amy Shore, who was photographing the total solar eclipse from her backyard in Leicestershire. A bird flew into Shore’s frame as the Moon was passing over the face of the Sun, adding a unique touch to her shot.

This one, the final eclipse of 2014, will be a partial solar eclipse that will be enjoyed by pretty much everybody in the United States. Read more…

Photographer Chases the Perfect Eclipse Shot at 44,000ft and 500mph

Forget storm chasing, that’s a cinch when you compare it to what former NASA photographer Ben Cooper and some colleagues of his did last weekend: eclipse chasing. Cooper captured the shot above from a chartered jet going 500mph at 44,000ft in the air, but it was a near miss.

You see, they had to try and cross the Moon’s shadow as it moved across the Earth… and that puppy was shuffling right along at 8,000mph! Read more…

NASA Curiosity Rover Captures Photos of a Solar Eclipse on Mars

We’ve shared some amazing eclipse photos taken from Earth, we’ve even shared some amazing eclipse photos taken of Earth, but today marks the first time we’ve ever had the chance to share eclipse photos taken from the surface of a different planet. Read more…

Incredible Photos of The Moon Casting Its Shadow on Earth During a Solar Eclipse

isseclipse3

Over the years, we’ve seen some pretty incredible eclipse photos, be they composites that’ll blow your mind or time-lapses that’ll capture your attention for minutes at a time.

What we haven’t seen nearly as much of are solar eclipse photos taken from space. What exactly does it look like when you turn the cameras the other way and capture the Moon’s shadow hitting the Earth? Read more…

Breathtaking Imagery of an Annular Solar Eclipse Captured at Sunrise

When it comes to solar eclipses, the total eclipse is king. We recently shared some unbelievable composite shots taken by Czech photographer Miloslav Druckmüller that showed one of those in a way you’ve probably never seen before. But when you don’t have a total eclipse at hand, arguably your best option is an annular eclipse.

That’s what photographer Colin Legg had to work with five days ago, and he made the absolute best of it, putting together this incredible video that combines time-lapse footage shot by three separate Canon 5D Mk IIs and 4K video taken with a Canon 1DC. Read more…

Total Solar Eclipse Time-Lapse Captures Shadow Sweeping Across the Land

Last month, there was a total solar eclipse that was visible to people in Australia. Photographer Colin Legg captured the whole thing as three separate time-lapse videos (seen above). The short but beautiful clips show the moon passing in front of the sun, a darkness sweeping across the vast landscape, and the moon’s shadow sweeping across the sky!
