Catching the Shadow of a Neptunian Moon

http://www.astrowatch.net/2017/10/catch ... -moon.html

Quote:
Researchers on the flying observatory SOFIA, the Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy, are preparing for a two-minute opportunity to study the atmosphere of Neptune’s moon Triton as it casts a faint shadow on Earth’s surface. This is the first chance to investigate Triton’s atmosphere in 16 years.

Quote:
By watching a star disappear behind Triton, one of Neptune's moons, astronomers learned about the state of its ultrathin atmosphere.
