A partial solar eclipse occurred on 06 January 2019 (UTC) — and JMA Himawari-8 “Red” Visible (0.64 µm) images (above) showed the shadow moving eastward across parts of Asia and the North Pacific Ocean.

Although it was less obvious, the shadow was also evident on GOES-17 “Red” Visible (0.64 µm) images as it moved across the North Pacific Ocean toward Alaska (below).
