Physics Phriday: Solar Eclipse Timelapse

In November, there was a total solar eclipse visible from Australia.  A solar eclipse happens when the moon passes between the earth and the sun blocking the sun’s light from a small part of the earth for a short period of time.  This video is a time-lapse video of the eclipse.  You are watching the shadow of the moon pass over the landscape.
