The big shadow comes from the moon during Sunday’s annular solar eclipse.

Sunday, some lucky places in the world saw annular solar eclipse “ring of fire” who hid most of the sun. Astronauts on the International Space Station had a very different view of the event.

NASA astronaut Chris Cassidy shared a collection of wild photos of the moon shadowing the Earth on Sunday.

“A super cool view of the annular solar eclipse, which went through the starboard side when we flew over China this morning,” wrote Cassidy. He took the opportunity to also wish all the dads in the world a happy Father’s Day.

Eclipse viewers on Earth saw a partial or complete annular eclipse. As the moon was too far from Earth to completely hide the sun, it created a “ring of fire” effect. From the point of view of the ISS, the eclipse appeared as a large shadow cast by the moon.

We have another solar eclipse to wait for December 14 this year for parts of South America. To learn more about capturing solar and lunar eclipses, consult our CNET guide.
