NASA's Lunar mission captures solar eclipse as seen from the moon



Greenbelt MD (SPX) Aug 30, 2017
During the total solar eclipse on Aug. 21, NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, or LRO, captured an image of the Moon's shadow over a large region of the United States, centered just north of Nashville, Tennessee.
