This is very cool! Did any of our members from up that way happen to see this?

FULL STORY



CRESCENT SUNRISE: Earlier today, the new Moon passed in front of the sun, slightly off-center, producing a partial solar eclipse and a fantastic crescent sunrise over Europe. Dennis Put sends this picture from Maasvlakte, The Netherlands:





Then, there was this as well:

Satellite flybys DOUBLE SOLAR ECLIPSE: Not satisfied with an ordinary blow-your-socks-off partial eclipse (see below), celebrated photographer Thierry Legault traveled to the Sultanate of Oman to record a rare double eclipse. For a split-second on Jan. 4th the disk of the sun was partially covered by the Moon and the International Space Station: must-see photos.

Took this pic from my top floor... it was a case of sit and wait for aaaages though as the blasted clouds wouldn't budge... then they broke for a while when I had my eyes shut and I 'saw' it was lighter... opened my eyes and this was in front of me!

Nice pic, I was on the M1 Driving and sunrise was in front of us the whole way, no clouds so had a good view of most of it, randomly it didn't hurt yours eyes to look at it at all really.

Yeah it is a good pic, it reminds me of one showing the shuttle in front of the sun... very small... what's the other black dot in the bottom right?

You know I was curious about that as well. It almost looks like its diameter is about the same as the space station, so it can't be all that small. Curious it is. I don't think we have any round planes yet do we???

There was so much cloud cover though wasn't there? I used two pairs of sunnies [yeah yeah I know it's still bad... so bite me] and stood there for ages waiting for that darn photo... lmao... The people on the road outside must have thought I was some weirdy stalker with my camera lense hanging out the window and two pairs of sunnies on!!

I have seen pics like that before could be a sun spot but i would expect to see more.. I am tho no expert! and no round planes or space stations I know of!


EDIT - Its mercury.... I have seen pics like this before and its little old mercury I think... you may say, "but that station size"... but we don't know distances... if i had to guess it would be Mercury but again im no expert

we were in the east Midlands..... there were clouds but at the time we could see it the sun was rising so was still below the clouds.... lucky I guess... normally we curse that the sunrise is bang on the motor way and is blinding in the morning.

Very cool post. I am pretty sure those other "blemishes" on the sun in the OP image are sun spots.

Anyway I found a few more images of the eclipse today:

What exactly do you mean with "unplanned"??

I even made a thread to inform people about this event taking place.

January 4, 2011 – Partial Solar Eclipse Reminder

You did notice that this thread was created back in January right?

Please elaborate.


Peace
