US photographer Neville MacKillin documented parts of the solar eclipse on May 28, 1900, when the total eclipse of the sun appeared throughout Mexico, the southeastern United States, Liberia and North Africa.

MacKillin, an amateur astronomer and a British filmmaker from North Carolina, picked up a collection of images with master craftsmanship, and filmmakers picked up the various frames MacKillin picked up at the right times to show this wonderful scene.

Two years earlier, MacKillin went to India to record one of the phenomena, but unfortunately the film stolen from him, he then tried with a telescope he built for the camera, to photograph the solar eclipse, where the moon blocked most of the sunlight.

He was eager to show how high-end photography can help scientists document and study cosmic phenomena

“The film, like magic, combines art and science,” said Brownie Dixon, the silent film secretary at the British Film Society.
