NASA’s LRO beobachtet den Schatten der Sonnenfinsternis 2024

Das Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) der NASA hat den Schatten der Sonnenfinsternis vom 8. April 2024 über Nordamerika aus dem Weltraum beobachtet. Die Sonnenfinsternis war die erste, die von Nordamerika aus seit 2017 zu sehen war.

Der LRO, der um den Mond kreist, konnte den Schatten der Sonne auf der Erde erkennen, als die Finsternis über den Kontinent zog. Die präzisen Beobachtungen des Orbiters trugen dazu bei, die genaue Position des Schattens sowie die Dauer der Finsternis zu bestimmen.

Die Informationen, die der LRO gesammelt hat, sind von unschätzbarem Wert für Wissenschaftler und Astronomen, die die Auswirkungen von Sonnenfinsternissen auf die Erde studieren. Die Daten des Orbiters tragen auch dazu bei, das Verständnis der Atmosphäre und des Klimas der Erde zu verbessern.

Die Sonnenfinsternis vom 8. April 2024 war ein beeindruckendes Ereignis, das von Millionen Menschen auf der Erde beobachtet wurde. Dank des LRO konnten die Wissenschaftler auch aus dem Weltraum aus verfolgen, wie sich der Schatten der Finsternis über Nordamerika bewegte.
