And here are new pictures of the 2009 Solar Eclipse

picture-1

A sequence of photos shows the moon passing between Earth and the sun before, during, and after an annular eclipse, as seen on January 26, 2009, from Bandar Lampung in Indonesia.

The path of the full annular eclipse crossed mostly open ocean in the southern part of the globe, starting about 560 miles (900 kilometers) south of Africa and not reaching land until it crossed Australia’s Cocos (Keeling) Islands in the Indian Ocean. Still, observers in southern Africa, Madagascar, Australia, and Southeast Asia were able to watch a partial eclipse.
