This was an excellent satellite view of an eclipse not viewable by naked eye, unless you happened to be in portions of Antarctica. A treat nonetheless for the satellite view, so I am sharing photos and clips from the event. Last Friday night to Saturday morning’s path was from mostly over the continent of Antarctica. and over the polar area in the Arctic Ocean into Russia for the sunset. Partial eclipses were visible in farther south portions of the world, including South Africa. Happy video!

An Eclipse Never Comes Alone!
A solar eclipse always occurs about two weeks before or after a lunar eclipse.

In any solar eclipse, using sunglasses, welding glasses are not rated for viewing. Care for your eyes. Resist the temptation for direct viewing of any annular, partial or total eclipse while not completely blocked by the shadow of the Sun!

  1. Great pictures! I remember an awesome total solar eclipse in March 1970. I had made an eclipse viewer with a pinhole and a box, and I was in midtown Manhattan to view it. It looked fascinating – so weird when it got all dark, A lot of people stood there staring up at the sun. Oh well, you warn people but they don’t listen.
