PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — NASA joined in on the solar eclipse festivities on Monday by throwing the sun some shade — on Twitter!

NASA’s Twitter account for the moon blocked the NASA Sun twitter account.

Well played, NASA, well played.

The eclipse began in Philadelphia at 1:22 p.m. and the peak eclipse time will be at 2:44 p.m.

The next solar eclipse to cut across the U.S. will be in the 2024, and will move near the East Coast.
