Satellite Captures 3 Partial Solar Eclipses in a Day

Storyful

A satellite captured images of the moon passing in front of the sun four times on February 26, partially blocking sunlight in three of them. One partial eclipse created a ring of fire, visible in parts of the Southern Hemisphere.

The moon passed four times between the satellite Proba-2 field of view and the sun on the same day, according to the European Space Agency. During one pass, the moon crossed in front of the sun’s center, leaving just a ring of sunlight visible. In the other two partial eclipses, the moon seemed to pass on the edges of the sun, leaving a larger part of sunlight visible. Credit: European Space Agency via Storyful
