The crew aboard the International Space Station captured the “Great American Eclipse” from orbit Monday (Aug. 21), witnessing both a partial eclipse of the sun and the moon’s shadow darkening a portion of the United States during totality. The Expedition 52 astronauts and cosmonauts were only the seventh crew to see a total solar eclipse (as visible from the Earth) from space since the advent of spaceflight 60 years ago.
