The only total solar eclipse of 2021 was one few could see and this new photo from a spacecraft nearly 1 million miles from Earth shows why. 

The photo, taken by NOAA’s Deep Space Climate Observatory (DISCOVR), tracked the solar eclipse as the moon’s shadow passed over a remote stretch of Antarctica and the south pole on Dec. 4. Taken from a distance of more than 950,000 miles (1.5 million km), the moon’s shadow appears as a dark blemish at the very bottom of our world in the image.
