The Expedition 52 crew on board the International Space Station will take three different looks at the solar eclipse on Monday (Aug. 21), as they orbit the Earth three times. Though the station will not cross the path of totality, the six astronauts and cosmonauts’ view will include the partial eclipse when looking at the sun, and uniquely, the moon’s umbra shadow darkening the Earth.
