This past weekend, Solar Impulse — a solar-powered plane that flies day and night without the use of fuel — completed its historic cross-country journey at New York City’s John F. Kennedy International Airport.

Solar Impulse’s unprecedented feat is a symbol of how far solar power has come and how far this clean energy source will go in the near future.

In this video — captured during the plane’s stopover in the nation’s capital — hear remarks from Secretary Ernest Moniz and catch breathtaking shots of Solar Impulse in flight.
