Hinode Spacecraft Captures Images of Partial Solar Eclipse: A partial solar eclipse was visible from much of North America before sundown on Thursday, Oct.23. A partial eclipse occurs when the moon blocks a portion of the sun from view. As viewed from Hinode's vantage point in space, this eclipse was annular instead of partial, which means that the entire moon moved in front of the sun but did not cover it completely. In this situation, a ring of the sun encircles the dark disk of the moon.
The Hinode spacecraft captured images the eclipse as it passed over North America using its X-ray Telescope. During the eclipse, the new moon eased across the sun from right to left with the sun shining brilliantly in the background. And as a stroke of good luck, this solar cycle's largest active region, which has been the source of several large flares over the past week, was centered on the sun's disk as the moon transited!
Led by the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), the Hinode mission is a collaboration between the space agencies of Japan, the United States, the United Kingdom and Europe.

Don't Stare! How to Safely Watch Today's Partial Solar Eclipse: During the late afternoon today, a partial solar eclipse will be visible from much of North America before sundown. Partial eclipses occur when the moon blocks part of the sun from view. However, it is NEVER safe to look at the sun with the naked eye.
A partial solar eclipse occurs when the moon obscures only part of the sun from Earth's view.

An Odd Trio: The Cassini spacecraft captures a rare family photo of three of Saturn's moons that couldn't be more different from each other! As the largest of the three, Tethys (image center) is round and has a variety of terrains across its surface. Meanwhile, Hyperion (to the upper-left of Tethys) is the "wild one" with a chaotic spin and Prometheus (lower-left) is a tiny moon that busies itself sculpting the F ring.
This view looks toward the sunlit side of the rings from about 1 degree above the ringplane. The image was taken in visible light with the Cassini spacecraft narrow-angle camera on July 14, 2014.
The view was acquired at a distance of approximately 1.2 million miles (1.9 million kilometers) from Tethys and at a Sun-Tethys-spacecraft, or phase, angle of 22 degrees. Image scale is 7 miles (11 kilometers) per pixel.

Another stunning moon image for International Observe the Moon Night (InOMN), an annual event encouraging people to 'look up' and take notice of the moon. This image from January 2012 is of the moon and Earth's atmosphere as seen from the International Space Station.

Astronaut Reid Wiseman aboard the International Space station tweeted this image and wrote, "Florida and Cuba under the #supermoon this past Saturday morning." The six-member Expedition 40 crew is conducting its normal suite of international science and maintenance while waiting for Europe's Automated Transfer Vehicle-5 (ATV-5) to dock Tuesday at 9:30 a.m. EDT.
