This GoPro video captured at 100,000 feet above Earth’s surface shows the inky-black shadow of the Moon darkening a 70-mile-wide patch of Wyoming and Nebraska during solar eclipse

On Aug. 21st during the Great American Solar Eclipse, the students of Earth to Sky Calculus launched 11 space weather balloons from the path of totality to photograph the Moon’s shadow from the stratosphere.

Looking down from a point more than 100,000 feet above Earth’s surface, this GoPro video shows the inky-black shadow of the Moon darkening a 70-mile-wide patch of Wyoming and Nebraska.
