The Earth eclipses the sun!


For the first time ever, we have seen a total solar eclipse by another planet. In this case, it is the Earth eclipsing the sun, not the moon. This video was captured by Japan's Kaguya lunar orbiter on Feb. 9, 2009. Beautiful! An English explanation for the event is posted at Science@NASA

Update: Also posted on Slashdot.
