A view of the Moon's shadow during the August 21, 2017 eclipse from both the night and day sides of the Earth.
This visualization combines the views from several previous visualizations (#4390, #4321, and #4314) to create a continuous camera flight from the night side of the Earth to the day side, showing the relationship of the Earth, Moon, and Sun during the August 21, 2017 eclipse. It shows the direction of the Moon's motion and the Earth's rotation, the complete path of the umbra from the moment it touches down on the Earth until the moment it departs, and the true scale of the Earth-Moon system.
