Partial eclipse of the Sun seen by Proba-2's main SWAP

On June 1st, a partial eclipse of the Sun became visible across northern latitudes - and also from Earth orbit. Between 2040 and 2246 GMT, ESA's Proba-2 micro-satellite twice crossed the path of the lunar shadow to return views of the partial solar eclipse. Proba-2's main SWAP (Sun Watcher using APS detectors and imaging processing) instrument acquired a new image every 30 seconds, built up into the movie seen here.
