SOHO and the 2006 Eclipse
29 March 2006
So almost invariably during an eclipse, expeditions go out to whatever sites are deemed most favourable, to capture what may be a once-in-a-lifetime observation of phenomena that are otherwise hidden by the brightness of the Sun.
To make the most of the observations, however, a number of expeditions are relying on additional data supplied from SOHO and other spacecraft, either to determine the pointing of their instruments (for those with a limited field of view), for context information to help interpret the data in a broader setting, or both.
This page is has pointers to an overview of the collaborations and support observations provided by SOHO, as well as a collection of related useful and hopefully interesting links.
This eclipse will take place during 08:34-11:48 UTC.
