Our Amazing Sun
A partial solar eclipse will take place on Friday (July 1) and will be visible just off Lutzlow-Holm Bay on the coast of Antarctica, near where the South Atlantic and Indian Oceans meet. But don't feel bad about being unable to witness the third eclipse of the month — from sundogs to solar pillars, we've rounded up the most remarkable images of solar activities and phenomena.
Here, a shot of the June 1-2, 2011 partial solar eclipse taken just after sunrise on June 2 from Bratsk, Russia. The partial solar eclipse was dubbed a "midnight" eclipse as its viewing path crossed the International Date Line.
