Ninth Call for PROBA2 Guest Investigator Program - Extended

The PROBA2 PI-team welcomes research proposals for the ninth round of its Guest Investigator program for research based on SWAP and LYRA data analysis by scientists outside the SWAP and LYRA PI-teams. We encourage in particular early-career post-docs and PhD students to apply, although more senior guest investigators' proposals are also welcome.

PROBA2 sees a Partial Eclipse on July 2, 2019

On July 2, 2019 the so-called Great South American Eclipse took place. The total eclipse path ran over parts of Chile and Argentina, where the Moon was seen to move in front of the Sun and blocked the sunlight out completely.

PROBA2 Partial Eclipse Observations - 13-Jul-2018 and 11-Aug-2018

Two partial solar eclipses were visible this summer: one on 2018 July 13 and another on 2018 August 11.

The majority of the eclipse in July took place over the Pacific and Indian Oceans, and a very small fraction above the southern Australia.

PROBA2 Partial Eclipse Observations - 15-Feb-2018

A partial solar eclipse was visible on 2018 February 15, in the southern part of South America, including many locations in Argentina, Chile, Paraguay, and Uruguay, as well as in Antarctica. The eclipse was visible from some areas of the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans as well. 

Eighth Call for PROBA2 Guest Investigator Program - Extended

Due to a recent surge in interest in the PROBA2 Guest Investigator program the proposal submission deadline has been extended to 2017-Oct-08 (23:59 CET). Those who have already submitted a proposal may re-submit their proposal if they wish to work on them more.
 

PROBA2 Eclipse Observations - 21-Aug-2017

UPDATE: The SWAP images are received from the satellite. Check out the pictures and movies below. 

Monday, 21 August 2017 has marked an important celestial event, a total solar eclipse. This was a well observed event, as the eclipse transited the whole of North America. The path of the eclipse can be seen here. People along the path saw a total eclipse, and those outside this path witnessed a partial solar eclipse where the moon covers part of the sun's disk. The eclipse was visible for about two and a half minutes from any location along the path of totality, and first seen on the west coast of the USA in Oregon at around 10:19 am PDT and finally in South Carolina at around 02:44 p.m EDT (more timing information can be found here).

PROBA2 views Partial Solar Eclipse - 8 & 9 March 2016

On 2016 March 8 and 9, a solar eclipse took place over the Pacific Ocean. This eclipse was total -that is, the entire solar disk was covered by the Moon- over Indonesia and the central Pacific, starting at sunrise over Sumatra and ending at sunset north of the Hawaiian Islands. Additionally, large parts of South-East Asia, Alaska and Australia witnessed a partial solar eclipse. The path of totality had a maximum width of 155 km and the maximum duration was 4 minutes and 9 seconds at the point of greatest eclipse, which was over the waters of the Pacific Ocean.
