Solar Eclipse from Space

by / March 12, 2013

The latest transmissions from NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO), which took off in 2010 for its five-year mission to observe solar activity, shows the sun partially blocked from view by the Earth -- and the moon.

Such solar eclipses will be regular occurences for the next three weeks, cnet.com reported, when the Earth blocks the SDO's view of the sun for a period of time each day.

The photo above was taken on Monday, March 11, and shows the moon crossing in front of the sun.
