Space Weather News for Jan. 29, 2014

LUNAR TRANSIT: The Moon is about to pass in front of the sun, producing an eclipse that can be seen only from space. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory will record the 2.5-hour "lunar transit" beginning at 1331 UTC or 8:31 EST on Thursday, Jan. 30th.

Tune into SpaceWeather.com for pictures during the event.

If you're curious, a few astrological notes may be found in a previous post concerning the New Moon of January 30th which is the second New Moon of January 2014 and that leaves February with only one lunation, the Valentine's Day Full Moon in romantic Leo!
