This image appeared on APOD the other day. It shows a solar eclipse as viewed from space. Very cool.
This image was taken from the old MIR station during the August 11th 1999 eclipse which was, if you can remember, visible from the UK. In fact if you look very closely you might be able to see me sitting on a ship in the English Channel. Oh wait, no you won’t because it was cloudy. As you can see though, despite the cloud it did go very dark.
