It was nearly impossible to miss news of the moon blocking out the sun yesterday, but seeing the solar eclipse from space was something else entirely.

Luckily, the space station was paying attention and has reported back with some stunning video and photos of the 70-mile wide swath of darkness that traversed America yesterday.

The immense size and speed of the event was best captured from above.

And here’s the shadow moving across its full path:

The next solar eclipse will take place on April 8, 2024 and both Toronto and Montreal will find themselves in the path of totality.

Based on yesterday’s interest, you better start booking your trip now…
