Less than a month after the total lunar eclipse and blood moon made for some spectacular shooting opportunities all across the US and Asia, the cosmos is treating us to another eclipse. 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!

Viral Solar Eclipse Ring Proposal Photo

This amazing image has been going viral on the Internet, usually accompanied with the caption:

A man in Japan effectively used the solar eclipse to propose to his girlfriend.

Sadly — sorry to burst your bubble — it’s not an actual photograph, but a composite image created by combining three photographs with the iOS app Image Blender. Japanese website wacameapp has published a behind-the-scenes look at how the image was created.

Tree Leaves as “Pinhole Cameras” During a Solar Eclipse

If you went outdoors to observe the solar eclipse yesterday, you might have noticed that the shadows cast by trees had suddenly become quite strange. The tiny gaps between leaves act as pinhole lenses, projecting crescent shaped images of the eclipsed sun onto the world below.

Time-Lapse of Yesterday’s Solar Eclipse

Photographer Cory Poole created this time-lapse video of yesterday’s solar eclipse using 700 photographs shot through a telescope that filters out the sun’s photosphere and captures its chromosphere. Wikipedia has some neat photos of the eclipse, including images of crescent shaped shadows cast by the sun during the event.
