Hinode Satellite Captures Eclipse Image

March 6, 2013
Thanks to image sensors, the Hinode satellite was able to capture this image of a solar eclipse.

In November of last year, e2v image sensors on board the Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency’s (JAXA) Hinode satellite captured an image of the moon traveling across the front of the sun. Launched in 2006, Hinode’s mission is to explore the magnetic fields of the sun. Scientists hope to shed new light on explosive solar activity that can interfere with satellite communications and electric power-transmission grids on Earth.
