‘Wow!’ is the word for this video that offers an out-of-the-world experience capturing solar eclipse from above 35,000 feet. It is said the flight from Anchorage to Honolulu on March 8, 2016, was adjusted so the passengers could catch a glimpse of the solar eclipse. And, from the craft, it is a totally different and splendid experience: the whole shadow of Moon on Earth could be watched moving. On Wednesday, the rare astronomical phenomenon was witnessed along a narrow path that stretched across 12 Indonesian provinces encompassing three time zones and about 40 million people. A partial eclipse was visible in other parts of the Indonesian archipelago, a swath of Asia and in northern Australia.
