There was a partial eclipse of the Sun today, Spaceweather reports, but you had to be in space to see it. More precisely, you had to be the Solar Dynamics Observatory in geosynchronous orbit 36,000 km above the surface of the Earth.
The reddish filter reminds me that Krypton’s sun was called Rao.
Apparently viewing eclipses with this space telescope and measuring the bending of light around the moon’s shape edge helps NASA to calibrate the telescope and get sharper images.
On the theme of the Sun, here is a video of an earth sized tornado on the Sun’s surface.
