View Of Total Eclipse From 30,000 Feet

Space geeks have reason to smile today.

This morning, the new Moon blocked out the sun, producing a magnificent total eclipse over Indonesia and the Pacific Ocean.   Here is the view from the window of an Alaskan Airlines flight that diverted into the path of totality.

30,000 feet above the Pacific, Alaska Airlines flight 870 from Anchorage to Honolulu diverted to fly through the path of totality. “I took photos every 2 seconds beginning 2 minutes before totality and ending 2 minutes after totality,” reports passenger Evan Zucker who had a window seat.
