Solar eclipse of May 21, 2012 satellite view Electro-L

Russian weather satellite "Electro-L" is located in geostationary orbit at an altitude of 36 kilometers. It has been successfully operating for over two years, and every 30 minutes, takes a picture of the entire disk of the planet Earth with high detail to 1 km per pixel. In the archives I found the satellite images which capture the solar eclipse 20-21 May 2012. I bring to your attention the processed image and the animation of the event.
