He total solar eclipse which took place this April 8th on Central America and North Americahas generated enormous attention around the world. The alignment between the Sun, Moon and Earth caused a large area of Mexico, United States and Canada They would remain completely dark in broad daylight, for a few minutes, as the eclipse moved across the continent. There were just over three hours between the moment in which was born over the Pacific Ocean and vanished in the Atlanticbeing the maximum duration of the shadow zone of 4 and a half minuteswhile he was passing from Mexico to the state of Texas in the United States.

Even more striking is the video recorded from the International Space Station and that could be seen during NASA's broadcast of the event. flight engineers Matthew Dominick and Jeanette Epps, of Expedition 71, photographed and recorded the eclipse. They did it after finishing their work day at the station, from the “window to the world” of the Russian Nauka Multipurpose Laboratory module.

The ISS was orbiting 418 kilometers over southeastern Canada as the shadow zone moved over New York and toward Newfoundland when the astronauts made the recording. Some spectacular images for history that look like something out of movies like Independence Day or Moonfall.
