Moon shadow south of Japan on July 22, 2009

Satellite view of the Shadow of the Moon at Total Solar Eclipse
by the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency Jul. 23, 2009
"On Wednesday, July 22 2009, a total solar eclipse was occurred. JAXA observed the eclipse by NASA satellite, Terra. Round black area on the sea south of Japan in Figure 1 was a shadow of the Moon. The observation time was 02:05 (GMT)."

By adjusting contrast and gamma the outline of the umbra becomes readily visible.
