Live Footage of Eclipse in Bio

Endeavour landing in California [68/135] STS-67
Shuttle: Endeavour
Launch: 2nd March 1995
Mission duration: 16 days 15 hours 8 minutes Launchpad: 39A Kennedy Space Center Landing: Edwards AFB Runway 22 …….. Astro-2 was the second dedicated Spacelab mission to conduct astronomical observations in the ultraviolet spectral regions. It consists of three unique instruments – the Hopkins Ultraviolet Telescope (HUT), the Ultraviolet Imaging Telescope (UIT) and the Wisconsin Ultraviolet Photo-Polarimeter Experiment (WUPPE). These experiments will select targets from a list of over 600 and observe objects ranging from some inside the solar system to individual stars, nebulae, supernova remnants, galaxies and active extragalactic objects. ////// #nasa #space #Spaceshuttle #challenge #discovery #columbia #atlantis #endeavour #challenger #enterprise #capecanaveral #florida #spacestation #spacecraft #spacex #launch #launchpad #space__launch #everyshuttlemission #iss #booster #houston #apollo #moon #plane #excelente #vab #gto #geo #leo

This composite image, made from seven frames, shows the International Space Station, with a crew of six onboard, as it transits the Sun at roughly five miles per second during a partial solar eclipse, Monday, Aug. 21, 2017 near Banner, Wyoming. Onboard as part of Expedition 52 are: NASA astronauts Peggy Whitson, Jack Fischer, and Randy Bresnik; Russian cosmonauts Fyodor Yurchikhin and Sergey Ryazanskiy; and ESA (European Space Agency) astronaut Paolo Nespoli. A total solar eclipse swept across a narrow portion of the contiguous United States from Lincoln Beach, Oregon to Charleston, South Carolina. A partial solar eclipse was visible across the entire North American continent along with parts of South America, Africa, and Europe. Photo Credit: (NASA/Joel Kowsky)

Space Shuttle Atlantis leaves The Orbiter Processing Facility en route to the VAB ahead of her next flight, STS-86. The orbiter was then to fly the seventh of nine Mir docking missions. -----------------------------

One of Space Shuttle Endeavour's space walkers captured this view of the spacecraft backdropped against the blackness of space, with the Sun displaying a rayed effect. The extended Remote Manipulator System (RMS) arm that the astronaut was standing on is seen on the left side of the view.

Partially viewed the solar eclipse 3 times orbiting the earth from the ISS

There've been posted a lot of pictures of yesterday's eclipse in the US, I took the two photos that I found the coolest. The first photo was taken by Jasman Mander in Southern Oregon. It shows the sun's path along the sky, which makes it a unique photo. -

In the second photo, taken from the ISS, you can see something only 6 people were able to see in real life, the umbra (moon's shadow on the earth). That must've been an outstanding view as well!
Have you seen the eclipse with your own eyes? If so, where? ©Jasman Mander || NASA

Looks like an meteor right? No Sir, it is a seven men crew disintegrating into parts in second of disaster. We lost great minds that day. The day was 1 Feb, 2003.

Endeavour's Last Flight. September 2012, #SpaceShuttle Endeavour and her 1970 @Boeing 747-123 performed several low passes before setting up for their final landing in Los Angeles. I chose this image for @radarimages #dailythemetag #special_tail_tuesday for the aerodynamic artwork of each ship's tail design. ==============================#flying #boeing #avgeek #usa #canon #shuttleendeavour #aviation #aviationphotography #nasa #747 #endeavour @nasa #spaceshuttle #boeing747 @canonusa #eaa #N905NA @nasaGoddard #queenoftheskies #instaplane @twoeleven_aviation #flywithaopa #bluesky #picoftheday #throwback #canonusa #teamcanon
