The Moon ‘photobombed’ the view of NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory when it passed between the spacecraft and the Sun on October 16.

“The transit lasted about 50 minutes, with the Moon covering about 44% of the Sun at peak,” NASA Sun & Space wrote while sharing a video. “The spacecraft…recovered its steady view soon after the transit ended,” added NASA.


The event was captured on October 16 as Nasa’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) was observing the Sun.

The spacecraft, SDO, “captured these images in a wavelength of extreme ultraviolet light. This kind of light is invisible to human eyes, and colourised here in gold,” Nasa said.
