Longjiang No. 2 Satellite Successfully Photographed The Total Solar Eclipse

Jul 05, 2019

At the beginning of this year, the Harbin Institute of Technology micro-satellite team used the Harmony University of Harbin Institute of Technology to develop the "Most Beautiful Moon Photo". A few days ago, Longjiang No. 2 once again took the "Ghost Scene" and successfully photographed the total solar eclipse image of the Earth South America from the moon's perspective, and in the process realized the two-way communication of the first international lunar orbiting satellite. The Longjiang No. 2 and Harbin Institute of Technology micro-nano satellite team have added a wonderful sum in the history of Chinese aerospace.


In the early morning of July 3, Beijing time, the only total solar eclipse in the world in 2019 was staged in the sky of South America. But what kind of scene will it be to observe the solar eclipse on the moon? The team of Harbin Institute of Technology decided to take a look at Longjiang No. 2. Through careful preparation and international cooperation, the photo of the solar eclipse was completed on the morning of July 3, and from 4 to 16 o'clock, 4 of the 6 solar eclipse photos were downloaded. In the photo, you can see the storms of the American continent, the ocean, the light reflected by the sun on the sea, and most importantly, the shadow of the moon that landed on the earth. The shooting was very successful. The head of the Harbin Institute of Technology told reporters that for the description of these photos, perhaps more accurate is the ground (ring) food taken from the lunar orbit.
