But what you have to you have remember is that SDO is in orbit around the Earth.
I'm sure you are all aware how if you see a partial eclipse in Northern Europe, a person in Africa might not see anything. That's because the shadow cast by the moon is relatively small and can only cover a small part of the earth at one time. Northern Europe might be in the shadow of the moon, but Africa might not be.
With SDO, a similiar thing happened. SDO was in the shadow of the moon, but Earth was not.
That's why SDO saw a partial eclipse, but no-one on Earth saw one.
