Rare Double Eclipse Photographed

Space Weather News for Jan. 4, 2011

FANTASTIC SOLAR ECLIPSE: When the sun rose over Europe this morning, a piece of it was missing.  The Moon had covered as much as 86% of the solar disk, producing a partial solar eclipse and a fantastic crescent-shaped sunrise.  The most amazing apparition, however, may have occurred in the Sultanate of Oman, where for a split second the Moon and the International Space Station partially eclipsed the sun at the same time.  Visit for must-see photos.
