As a kid, I always wanted to be an astronaut. There is something about going up into outer-space and seeing the world from a completely different perspective that appeals to me. There is so much going on in outer space that we have only just begun to discover. Sometimes thinking about everything in the sky, the vast expanse beyond our knowledge, can be quite overwhelming. There are billions of stars, planets, and galaxies that have yet to be discovered with the possibility of never being discovered by our species. One of the main reasons I would love to go up into space is to see the beautiful view. Although seeing a shooting star from my backyard is exciting, I am sure it is magical if you are in space. That is exactly the case for the following video, most of us have seen a total eclipse from earth, but seeing an eclipse from a plane is a completely different story, see for yourself.
I am sure the person shooting the video doesn’t regret getting the window seat of this plane. Witnessing an eclipse from a plane is a very rare event, especially seeing it that close to the stratosphere. My favorite part, how they took it and put different speeds on it, so you can see it in slow motion as well as sped up. Regardless, whichever speed you prefer, this video is phenomenal.
