The 2 July Solar Eclipse seen from space

On July 2, 2019 the Great South American Eclipse took place. We could see it from space!

The PROBA2 team was ready to catch the solar eclipse with 2 instruments flying in space: SWAP, an EUV imager took pictures in the EUV and LYRA measured the EUV radiation during the eclipse. And PROBA2 could witness 4 times an eclipse because of its fast orbit around Earth allowing 4 passages through the shadow of the moon.

Elke tells us all about it on the PROBA2 webpage. Interesting!
