Home This is a view of the moon transiting, or passing in front of, the Sun as seen from the STEREO-B spacecraft on Feb. 25th, 2007. The Sun is in false color, and the moon appears as a black disk on the upper right. NASA’s STEREO mission consists of two spacecraft launched in October, 2006 to study solar storms.

This is an artist’s concept of the Earth’s global magnetic field, with the bow shock. Earth is in the middle of the image, surrounded by its magnetic field, represented by purple lines. The bow shock is the blue crescent on the right. Many energetic particles in the solar wind, represented in gold, are deflected by Earth’s magnetic “shield”.
