NASA spacecraft captures rare double eclipse on video

- NASA captured a rare space event Friday when Earth and the moon crossed in front of the sun.

NASA’S Solar Dynamics Observatory captured the stunning double eclipse. It was also visible in parts of southern and central Africa.

The space agency said early Friday morning Earth completely eclipsed the sun from the satellite’s perspective just as the moon began its journey across the face of the sun.
