The morning of Sept. 1, NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) caught a rare sight: the Earth and Moon, together, blotting out the Sun.
In the video, you can discern the two objects by their edges (and scale). Earth, as it passes in front of the Sun, has a fuzzy edge, owing to its thick atmosphere. With little between its surface and space, the Moon has a sharply defined edge.
