Hinode Captures Images of Partial Solar Eclipse

A partial solar eclipse was visible from much of North America before sundown on Thursday, Oct.23. A partial eclipse occurs when the moon blocks a portion of the sun from view.

The Hinode spacecraft captured images of yesterday’s eclipse as it passed over North America using its X-ray Telescope.  During the eclipse, the new moon eased across the sun from right to left with the Sun shining brilliantly in the background.  And as a stroke of good luck, this solar cycle’s largest active region, which has been the source of several large flares over the past week, was centered on the sun’s disk as the moon transited!

Hinode is in the eighth year of its mission to observe the sun. Previously, Hinode has observed numerous eclipses due to its high-altitude, sun-synchronous orbit.  As viewed from Hinode’s vantage point in space, this eclipse was annular instead of partial, which means that the entire moon moved in front of the sun but did not cover it completely.  In this situation, a ring of the sun encircles the dark disk of the moon.

Led by the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), the Hinode mission is a collaboration between the space agencies of Japan, the United States, the United Kingdom and Europe. NASA helped in the development, funding and assembly of the spacecraft's three science instruments.

Hinode is part of the Solar Terrestrial Probes (STP) Program within the Heliophysics Division of NASA's Science Mission Directorate in Washington. NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala., manages the Hinode science operations. The Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory is the lead U.S. investigator for the X-ray telescope.

Annular Solar Eclipse

It's a miracle ring what celestial mechanics makes for a few minitues of the centuries at the specific place. Certainly I will not be able to see this perfect ring in my life time again, at least, in Tokyo.

I took this shot by very good fortune because I did not have a ND filter to decrease the strong sun light for a camera. The perfect clouds condition enabled me to take it.

The celestial ring hovered above dark fast-fleeting clouds. It looks like Japanese Sumi-e, ink-and-wash painting.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

A Solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between the Sun and the Earth. This can happen only during a new moon, when the Sun and the Moon are in conjunction as seen from Earth. There are four types of solar eclipses: A total eclipse, An annular eclipse, A hybrid eclipse and A partial eclipse.

The Earth revolves about the sun yearly and the Moon revolves about the Earth monthly. So if the Moon were in a circular orbit close enough to the Earth and in the same orbital plane, there would be total solar eclipses every single month. However, the Moon's orbit is angled at more than 5 degrees to the earth's orbit around the Sun so its shadow at new moon often misses the Earth. This factor makes an Eclipse rare phenomenon.

An Eclipse could occur roughly a few times in a year somewhere on the Earth. For example next Annular Eclipse will occur on 13 November 2012 at north Australia and Solomon Islands.

However at a specific place an Eclipse is very rare phenomenon.

For example, at Tokyo, the last Annular Eclipse occurred on 8 September 1839 (5:28-5:30). This time it occurred on 21 May 2012 (7:32-7:37). Next time it will occur on 8 April 2312 (6:56-6:59). I can’t see it in my life again, at least, in Tokyo.


---------------------------------------------------------------------


There is a very old fantasy on the Moon, The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter (竹取物語 Taketori Monogatari), also known as Princess Kaguya (かぐや姫 Kaguya Hime). It's a 10th century Japanese folktale and the first texts of any culture to imagine that the Moon is an inhabited world and describe travel between it and the Earth.
It primarily details the life of a mysterious beautiful girl called Kaguya-hime, who was discovered as a baby inside the stalk of a glowing bamboo plant. She is said to be from The Capital of the Moon and has unusual hair that shines with a light like the moon.

After Further Review
Remember that Solar Eclipse?  I didn't think I had anything worth even looking at but I think that I actually captured it in the lens flare here.  There are also stars in the shot!  Way out of my comfort zone and maybe I'm wrong about it being from the eclipse, but I thought it was cool enough to share.

Hinode satellite captures X-ray footage of solar eclipse
The moon passed between the Earth and the sun on Thursday, Oct. 23. While avid stargazers in North America looked up to watch the spectacle, the best vantage point was several hundred miles above the North Pole. The Hinode spacecraft was in the right place at the right time to catch the solar eclipse. What's more, because of its vantage point Hinode witnessed a 'ring of fire' or annular eclipse.

Hinode Captures Images of Partial Solar Eclipse

On 19 October, I shared the post "October 23, 2014 - Partial Solar Eclipse visible in North America".[1]

Now I share this stunning gif  which shows the partial solar eclipse as seen by the international Hinode satellite.

The Hinode spacecraft captured images of the eclipse as it passed over North America using its X-ray Telescope.  During the eclipse, the new moon eased across the sun from right to left with the Sun shining brilliantly in the background.  And as a stroke of good luck, this solar cycle’s largest active region, which has been the source of several large flares over the past week, was centered on the sun’s disk as the moon transited!

Hinode Captures Images of Partial Solar Eclipse

A partial solar eclipse was visible from much of North America before sundown on Thursday, Oct.23. A partial eclipse occurs when the moon blocks a portion of the sun from view.

The Hinode spacecraft captured images of yesterday’s eclipse as it passed over North America using its X-ray Telescope.  During the eclipse, the new moon eased across the sun from right to left with the Sun shining brilliantly in the background.  And as a stroke of good luck, this solar cycle’s largest active region, which has been the source of several large flares over the past week, was centered on the sun’s disk as the moon transited!

Hinode is in the eighth year of its mission to observe the sun. Previously, Hinode has observed numerous eclipses due to its high-altitude, sun-synchronous orbit.  As viewed from Hinode’s vantage point in space, this eclipse was annular instead of partial, which means that the entire moon moved in front of the sun but did not cover it completely.  In this situation, a ring of the sun encircles the dark disk of the moon.

Led by the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), the Hinode mission is a collaboration between the space agencies of Japan, the United States, the United Kingdom and Europe. NASA helped in the development, funding and assembly of the spacecraft's three science instruments.

Hinode is part of the Solar Terrestrial Probes (STP) Program within the Heliophysics Division of NASA's Science Mission Directorate in Washington. NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala., manages the Hinode science operations. The Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory is the lead U.S. investigator for the X-ray telescope.
