Billions had a chance to see a partial eclipse last week, which covered anywhere from 15 to 85 percent depending on location.

But in case you missed it, fear not because Nasa has shown the eclipse from a completely different angle in space.

The international Hinode satellite used its X-ray telescope to capture this remarkable moment.

It filmed three passages of the moon eclipsing the sun on October 25.

The moment left a ring of fire around the edges as the sun’s brightly burning surface struggles to stay visible.

Hinode is actually there to study the sun’s magnetic fields in hopes of understanding more about what drives the sun’s atmosphere and drives solar flares.

It was launched back in September 2006.

The mission is a joint project led by the Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency with support from the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan, the European Space Agency (ESA), the UK Space Agency and Nasa.

The recent partial solar eclipse was visible from Europe, the Middle East, and some parts of Africa and Asia.
