Partial solar eclipse

Partial solar eclipse Facts

February 21 at noon in the cosmos can be observed the partial solar eclipse, when the new moon passes between the sun and NASA spacecraft. From the Earth to the phenomenon can not be seen. However, NASA's solar dynamics observatory could take a picture of a dim eclipse from geostationary orbit at an altitude of 36,000 km. Moon has closed a small, but fairly bright part of the sun, allowing the spacecraft to calibrate their data and record the eclipse, making pictures and videos more clear.
