Southeast Asia was treated last night to a stunning total solar eclipse as the moon passed between the sun and the Earth blocking out almost all the light.
The spectacle certainly didn't disappoint. As the eclipse travelled over 8,800 miles across the Pacific the shadow it cast reached up to 97 miles wide.
"The cool thing for those who are going to be in the path of totality is that they are going to be able to see the outer atmosphere of the sun called the corona," C. Alex Young, a solar astrophysicist from NASA, told The New York Times. "This is only visible from the ground during a total solar eclipse."

The eclipse itself lasted around four hours with each part of land affected getting between 90 seconds to four minutes of total darkness.
In case you're wondering the next total solar eclipse will move from west to east across the U.S. on Aug. 21, 2017. There's some more bad news for UK skywatchers as well, the next total solar eclipse won't be until 2090.
