Caption: Lunar transit across the Earth. Footage of the Moon passing (transiting) in front of the full sunlit disk of the Earth. This transit lasted from 20:30 UTC 16 July 2015 to 00:10 UTC 17 July 2015. The footage consists of a series of reprocessed images captured by NASA's Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera (EPIC) on board NOAA's Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) satellite. Since DSCOVR is not exactly on the Sun-Earth line, this event is not a solar eclipse.
