This composite image approximates the visual appearance of the eclipsed Sun by summing a selection of images featuring phenomena visible simultaneously to the human eye. Superimposed on the Moon's disc is an image of the Sun taken within half an hour of totality in Zambia by the SOHO spacecraft 1.5 million kilometres sunward of the Earth. For details please refer to the Production Notes for this image.
