The August Eclipse Left A 'Wake' in the Earth's Upper Atmosphere

A total solar eclipse by itself isn’t so unusual—the moon shades the Sun every 18 months, from the view of somewhere on Earth. But this year’s “Great American Eclipse” was special simply for how much inhabited land it covered, crossing the length of America from Oregon to South Carolina.

What the solar eclipse looked like from the Moon

If you were on the Moon during last week's solar eclipse, you would have seen the Moon's shadow moving across Earth. This image was taken by the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) satellite.

A few minutes later, LRO began a slow 18...
