First Solar Eclipse of 2009 occured on January 26


Some parts of the world will witness a partial eclipse of the sun today. The moon will pass in front of the sun concealing more than 90 percent of it from view.

See video of today’s Solar Eclipse.

Or visit NASA’s Eclipse website to find information on past and upcoming solar/lunar eclipses and when they’ll be visible in our area. You can also view a Sky Calendar to see what’s visible in our part of the night’s sky.
