NASA will soon be sharing several breathtaking images of eclipses as seen from space.
Eclipse season for Nasa's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) is in full effect.
What is SDO's eclipse season?
SDO’s eclipse season is a three-week period that occurs twice a year near the equinoxes, Nasa said.
During this period, Earth blocks SDO’s view of the Sun for a short while each day – this season it will happen at 3:30 am ET.
This event allows the SDO to take stunning images of eclipses as seen from space.

Nasa will be sharing their images on SDO's webpage as soon as the images are snapped and data is collected.
