Passing Through The Moon's Shadow Looks Way Too Scary

By Chris Mills on at

We though we'd seen the best of the solar eclipse images, but this video — unearthed by Reddit — has been hiding out on YouTube, saving the absolute best for last.

The video is a timelapse movie of flying through the moon's shadow. The timelapse is has been sped up, so you get a very real sense of being overtaken by the moon's shadow. Racing a shadow cast by an object 240,000 miles away is probably the closest I'll ever come to space. [YouTube via Reddit]
