With the moon nearly at perigee, observers in Australia and the South Pacific were treated to a total solar eclipse yesterday. The orbit of Hinode resulted in two eclipses this time, each with a somewhat different perspective due to parallax. The first eclipse was also total, and the second saw the Moon skim the eastern limb of the Sun for a partial eclipse. The next eclipse will occur in on May 10th, 2013 and will again be visible from Australia and islands throughout the Pacific. The east coast of the U.S. will catch a peice of the subsequent eclipse as the Sun rises on November 3rd, 2013, but it won't be until October of 2014 that most North Americans will again see their daylight dimmed by the Moon.

Hinode is a Japanese mission developed and launched by ISAS/JAXA, with NAOJ as domestic partner and NASA and STFC (UK) as international partners. It is operated by these agencies in co-operation with ESA and the NSC (Norway).
