180211期:马尼拉海湾上空的日偏食

马尼拉海湾上空的日偏食

夕阳怎么会变成这样?原来是日偏食啊!在2009年初,非洲、澳洲和亚洲部分地区,能看到月亮遮掩部分太阳而造成的日偏食。在上面这幅摄于菲律宾亚洲购物城海堤的主题影像里,日偏食悬在菲律宾马尼拉海湾上空,而前景中可以看到码头的剪影。在那年唯一的日环食期间(本图中日偏食的源头),日食追逐者和恰巧在此的天文爱好者,以影片、日食投影像阵和火环等形式,呈现了或有趣,或充满艺术气息的日食景象。在下周四,部分太阳又再次被月亮遮盖,出现了日偏食的景象。不过下周四的日食,只可在南美洲南部的部分地区及南极洲才可观测到。

A Partial Eclipse Over Manila Bay

Explanation: What’s happened to the setting Sun? An eclipse! In early 2009, the Moon eclipsed part of the Sun as visible from parts of Africa, Australia, and Asia. In particular the featured image, taken from the Mall of Asia seawall, caught a partially eclipsed Sun setting over Manila Bay in the Philippines. Piers are visible in silhouette in the foreground. Eclipse chasers and well placed sky enthusiasts captured many other interesting and artistic images of the year’s only annular solar eclipse, including movies, eclipse shadow arrays, and rings of fire. On Thursday parts of the Sun again will become briefly blocked by the Moon, again visible to some as a partial eclipse of the Sun. Thursday’s eclipse, however, will only be visible from parts of southern South America and Antarctica.
