Some of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency’s archival photos were taken with the naked eye, or in a field of view of just a few feet.
Other images were shot using a special camera that is specially designed to capture high-resolution images.
The agency has also produced some special-purpose cameras to capture the eclipse in the dark, and its cameras were used in the 2001 photo of a comet passing in front of the moon.
The Agency says that it plans to use these cameras for future geospatial imagery.
The photographs will be archived in a new digital archive, the National Photographic Archive, or NPA, which is the agency’s archiving arm.
The NPA is in charge of keeping the NGA’s images accessible and open for research.
NPA director Paul Rabinowitz said in a statement that the NPA’s archive will be used for “a range of purposes, from scientific research, to public outreach, and to help us build a digital community around the Earth.”
He said the archive will include archival images of the sun, moon, planets, moon dust, and solar corona.
In addition to documenting the eclipse, the archive also contains photos of the Earth, moon and planets from NASA’s Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer, or WISE.
These images were taken by WISE during the NASA’s Cassini spacecraft’s flyby of Saturn.
WISE’s instruments were able to measure the temperature of the Saturnian rings, and it was able to detect the planet’s magnetic field.
NASA says that the Cassini images are “among the best images ever taken of the planet” and that they show a “great deal of detail” in Saturn’s rings.
