(KRON) — It’s a pretty cool sight!

NASA has released images of the moon passing in front of the sun in Sunday’s partial solar eclipse.

The images of the 1-hour lunar transition were taken from a satellite in space.

Experts say that the moon covered about 59 percent of the sun at the peak of its journey.
