On February 26, 2017, the Moon moved between Earth and the Sun, providing a stunning annular eclipse.

An annular eclipse is different from a total solar eclipse in that it leaves a small slice of sunlight visible as the Moon’s outer shadow passes over Earth.

Sadly, the eclipse could only be viewed live from the southernmost part of the world, but Slooh captured the event on film and is sharing it with the world. So if you don’t live in South America or Africa (or you live in that area and just want to watch it again), you can view the Annular Eclipse via Slooh’s footage.
