NASA reveals amazing footage of the moon as it passes in front of the sun

The light phenomenon was an eclipse of the sun that was visible only in space and lasted for several hours, according to the British Daily Mail.

The satellite monitors solar emissions that serve as warning signs of solar flares, which can cause blackouts on Earth, and has picked up filaments that explode at the northwest tip near the pole once the moon disappears.

Solar emission observations help in the early detection of solar flares, coronal mass ejections, and other phenomena that affect the Earth’s space environment.
