The great eclipse

April 8,  2024. A date that has been highlighted in many calendars for months. It is the day of the Great American Eclipse, as it is now called. A total eclipse during which the Moon’s shadow will cover large parts of Mexico, the USA and Canada. In fact, weather permitting, all of Noth America will witness at least a partial eclipse on that day.

Annular eclipse On October 14, 2023

On Saturday, October 14, an annular solar eclipse crossed North, Central, and South America. Due to its fast polar orbit, the PROBA2 satellite did not cross the eclipse path, but instead observed several partial eclipses.
