Oldest film of a solar eclipse released online

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

In August 2017, viewers captured so many images and films of the total solar eclipse in the United States that UC Berkeley’s Space Sciences Laboratory stitched over 50,000 of them into one giant “Megamovie.” But back in 1900, when a similar eclipse crossed the U.S., there was only person pointing their movie camera at the sky. Now, the Royal Astronomical Society has rediscovered that oldest surviving eclipse footage, restoring the 120-year-old film and putting it online for the first time.
