Satellite view of a total eclipse  MAR 09 2016

The Japanese satellite Himawari caught yesterday's total solar eclipse as it moved across the Pacific Ocean.

Update: @paulmison sent along some better views of the eclipse: here and here. I tried to find a better YouTube embed, but no dice. This one, taken of the eclipse in Micronesia, is pretty amazing though...you can see the solar flares coming off the surface of the Sun as it reaches totality. Holy shit, I'm getting excited for Eclipsathon 2017!
