From the start, it’s clear that eclipses are the stuff of legend, and the first was in 1979.

    But since then, there have been three more that have captivated and captivated generations.

    Here are some of the best images of eclipses of the past century.

    1987 – Sunspot Eclipses The solar eclipse that hit the US and Japan in 1987 was the first to see a clear eclipse without the aid of artificial lighting.

    In the same year, NASA released the first solar eclipse photography images.

    The first eclipse, on February 20, 1917, was captured by the Gemini spacecraft on a visit to the Moon.

    The moon’s shadow cast by the sun on the surface of the Moon’s atmosphere became visible in this image.

    This photograph was published in a scientific journal, but was also published in newspapers around the world.

    The photograph was taken by the Apollo spacecraft, on a mission to the moon in 1968.

    1997 – Solar Eclipsed by the Moon Solar eclipses can be as simple as a clear-eyed photograph.

    They are often taken from high altitudes, often with the Moon shining directly on the image, and they can be seen in real time.

    In 1999, the Solar Eclipse of 1997 marked the first time a full moon had appeared during a full solar eclipse.

    A solar eclipse in the Northern Hemisphere, with a bright Moon cast over the entire sky.

    The Solar Eclipse in the Southern Hemisphere, captured by an orbiting satellite, on July 12, 1999.

    This is the first full solar event in which the Moon was visible in the sky.

    This photo was taken in the middle of the night, when the Sun was at its peak.

    This event, and another that occurred in May, 1999, were also seen in the US. 4.

    1997 Solar Eclipse Seen by a Satellite A total solar eclipse can be observed at any time, but eclipses that occur during a solar eclipse tend to be seen later in the day, usually in the afternoon.

    This particular image was taken from a satellite orbiting the Earth at the time of the eclipse.

    The image was released by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory.

    This was the only time in history when the Earth was in the position where it was viewed from above.

    1997 Total Solar Eclipse The image, taken from the ISS on June 19, 1997, shows the eclipse from space.

    The sun is in the center of the Earth, and is almost completely obscured by the moon.

    A total lunar eclipse is visible at the same time, and can be watched from almost any position in the world by satellites.

    This image was captured on June 17, 1997 by the Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA).

    1999 Total Solar eclipse Seen from the International Space Station A total eclipse can only be seen from space, so it’s not possible to view it directly from Earth.

    But NASA did release images of the total solar eclipses taken in 1999 from the space station.

    The eclipse of May 16, 1999 was captured from a space station orbiting Earth at 1:13 a.m.

    EDT (1513 GMT).

    It was visible for about one hour, and was visible to more than 1 billion people worldwide.

    1999 Eclipse in Space This image, released by the European Space Agency, was taken on June 13, 1999 from a NASA satellite orbiting Earth, as the eclipse began.

    The Earth’s shadow was partially eclipsed by an event that occurred during the solar eclipse, but the moon did not.

    This satellite image was provided by the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI).

    1999 Solar Eclipse Visible from Space The solar eclipsed the Earth from a distance of about 14.6 million kilometres (9.8 million miles).

    A total eclipsed was seen at about 10:00 a.t. on June 12, 2000.

    It was seen in three stages, the first being a partial eclipse, when sunlight was blocked by the Sun.

    This partial eclipse was visible from a location about 70,000 kilometres (37,000 miles) away, from a position where the Sun’s rays were about 100 kilometres (62 miles) above the Earth’s surface.

    The second stage, the total eclipse, was visible at a location more than 2,000,000 kilometers (1,500,000 feet) above Earth’s atmosphere, from where the sunlight from the solar storm was blocked.

    This total eclipse was captured at a position near the Sun at 1.8 billion kilometres (1.2 billion miles) from Earth’s equator.

    The third stage, an annular eclipse, saw sunlight block the Earth for only a short time, lasting about 1 hour and 10 minutes.
