Solar Eclipse From Space

Close-up of a partial phase of the July 22, 2009 total solar eclipse. This photo was captured by the Hinode spacecraft. During a solar eclipse, the Earth, moon and sun are aligned in the same plane and the moon passes between the Earth and the sun, partially or completely covering our closest star.
