2014 Spring Eclipse Season Starts For NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory
2014-03-04 08:55:45

Karen C. Fox, NASA The 2014 spring eclipse season NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory begins Feb. 27, 2014. These seasons – a time when Earth blocks SDO's view of the sun for a period of time each day - last around three weeks and happen twice a year near the equinoxes. The eclipses are fairly short near the beginning and end of the season but ramp up to 72 minutes in the middle. Any spacecraft observing the sun from an orbit around Earth has to contend with such eclipses, but SDO's...

Eclipse -- An eclipse occurs when an astronomical body such as a planet, or satellite gets between a source of light (e.g. the Sun) and another body. For instance, Jupiter eclipses its moons when it gets between them and the Sun. -- Lunar eclipses - are where the Earth obscures the Sun, from the Moon's point of view. The Moon moves through the shadow cast by the Earth. This can only happen at full moon. -- Solar eclipses - are where the Moon obscures the Sun, from the Earth's point of...

Solar Eclipse

Solar Eclipse -- A solar eclipse occurs when Sun, Moon and Earth are on a single line, the Moon being in the middle. Seen from the Earth, the Moon is in front of the Sun and thus part or all of the light of the Sun is hidden by the Moon. Thus it may seem that a piece has been taken out of the Sun, or that it has suddenly disappeared. There are three types of solar eclipses: -- A partial solar eclipse: Only part of the Sun and the Moon overlap -- A total solar eclipse: All of the Sun is...

The Moon -- The Moon is the largest satellite of the Earth, and is occasionally called Luna (Latin for moon) to distinguish it from the general use of the word "moon". The Moon is distinguished from the satellites of other planets by its initial capital letter; the other moons are described in the natural satellite article. The words moon and month come from the same Old English root word. The Moon makes a complete orbit of the celestial sphere about every four weeks. Each hour the...

Lunar Phase -- The lunar phase is an astronomical term referring to the portion of the Moon that is visibly illuminated by the Sun, as seen from Earth. As the Moon orbits the Earth, the relative positions of the Sun, Earth and Moon change. Since the Moon only appears bright due to the Sun's reflected light, only the half of the Moon closest to the Sun is illuminated. Lunar phases are the result of our seeing the illuminated half of the Moon at different angles. The Moon exhibits...

Lunar eclipse -- From Earth, a lunar eclipse occurs when Sun, Earth and Moon are in a single line with Earth in the middle. If this occurs, the Moon (or part of it) does not receive light from the Sun because it is in the shadow of the Earth, and thus the Moon becomes invisible even though there would normally have been a full moon. Most of the light that is refracted through the Earth's atmosphere is red, and thus an eclipsed Moon will glow in reddish hues. A penumbral eclipse...
