Solar eclipse, from the edge of space

Earth to Sky Calculus launched a large number of scientific balloons during the solar eclipse last August, all along the eclipse path, and have now released a video from one of them, released near Fort Laramie, WY.  It’s breathtaking.  The Sun barely features in the video.  Instead, the centerpiece is the Moon’s shadow, rushing towards the balloon and then racing away just as fast.  It’s beautiful, and you should definitely watch; it’s a solar eclipse video like none I’ve ever seen before.
