SOLAR ECLIPSES FROM SPACE

These are images taken of the 1999 and 2009 solar eclipses from orbit.  Only those in the direct center of the dark spot experience the full eclipse while those on the outer boundary experience a partial eclipse.  This kind of eclipse is caused when the moon comes between the Earth and the Sun and casts a shadow on the planet.
