Results from the observations that were made by CDS during recent solar eclipses
It should be noted that CDS is not able to view an actual eclipse, due to the spacecraft being
locacted 1.6Million kilometers towards the sun and beyond the orbit of the moon.
From its unique vantage point it is able to provide valuable detailed science data on the state of the
sun during the eclipse period to ground based science observers.
