Watch the Moon devour the Sun

Cool time-lapse video of yesterday's solar eclipse


There's a lot of videos out there of yesterday's solar eclipse (sadly, this East Coaster wasn't able to see the eclipse), but this one is the coolest one I've seen so far.

Cory Poole, a science teacher, took 700 pictures of the eclipse with a Coronado Solar Max 60 Double Stack telescope and created this time-lapse video of the moon as it started to block out the Sun. Very cool.

I'm surprised that NASA hasn't posted any other videos yet, but it's pretty easy to see other videos by just looking at the related videos off this one in YouTube.
