Watch the moon's shadow slide across the U.S. from space

Watch the moon's shadow slide across the U.S. from spaceThanks to the millions who witnessed and photographed the total solar eclipse on Monday, we're quite familiar with what the event looked like from the ground.  But what did it look like from space? Thankfully, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is testing out its latest weather satellite, known as GOES-16, which launched in November of 2016. The agency put the satellite to use tracking the eclipse. SEE ALSO: Neil deGrasse Tyson on all things Great American Eclipse The agency released a series of images and animations on Monday featuring the moon's shadow as it creeped across the lower 48 states. This first image, taken by the satellite's Advanced Baseline Imager, picked up the moon's shadow coming ashore in the Pacific Northwest.  Satellite image from GOES-16, showing the moon's shadow across the Northwest U.S.Image: NOAA.The NOAA, which operates weather satellites, forecasts severe weather, and protects marine species, among other duties, also released an image later in the day showing the shadow of the eclipse located across the East Coast.  The imager that took this photo can take a snapshot of Earth every 15 minutes.  Satellite image from GOES-16, showing the moon's shadow across the East.Image: noaa.Astronauts on the International Space Station also had a unique vantage point for the eclipse, which they shared via social media.  Millions of people saw #Eclipse2017 but only six people saw the umbra, or the moon's shadow, over the United States from space today. pic.twitter.com/hMgMC5MgRh — Intl.

Check out these @Space_Station views: pic.twitter.com/6uPdyRFbXs — NASA (@NASA) August 21, 2017 NASA and NOAA will likely have newer, and even better platforms in the sky when the next total solar eclipse appears above the U.S. in 2024.

Syria's Assad says Western plots against him foiled but war not yet won

Syria's Assad says Western plots against him foiled but war not yet wonBy Suleiman Al-Khalidi AMMAN (Reuters) - Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said on Sunday his country had foiled Western designs to topple him but his army had not yet won the fight to end Syria's six-year-old insurgency. In an televised address, Assad said that even though there were signs of victory after six-and-a-half years of civil war, the "battle continues, and where we go later and it becomes possible to talk about victory...that's a different matter". "Their direct support - politically, economically and militarily - has made possible bigger advances on the battlefield and reduced the losses and burdens of war," Assad added.
