Shadow of the Moon

A solar eclipse happens when the Moon passes between the Earth and the Sun. As the Moon blocks the Sun's light it casts a shadow onto the surface of the Earth. In this video, the shadow of the Moon can be seen moving over the Earth's surface during the total solar eclipse of July 2019.
