Total Eclipse in Orbit

Hinode experienced total eclipse in orbit on 2007 March 19, while it was just a partial eclipse on the ground. These data are used to measure scatterd light of telescopes. X-ray Telescope (XRT) obtained full disk images during the total eclipse in soft X-ray images. Solar Optical Telescope (SOT) was pointed at disk center and witnessed shadow of mountains on the Moon.
