It's less total eclipse of the heart, more partial eclipse of the side of the sun.
The eclipse was termed a "fairly shallow transit" as the moon appears to dip only slightly into the side of the sun.
We are able to see the sun here in extreme ultraviolet light.
The scientific bonus of the partial eclipse was that the EVE output dipped, allowing scientists to measure the energy emitted by the active region of the sun.
The SDO was launched into space with the sole aim of helping us to better understand the sun.
SDO launched on 11 February 11, 2010 on an Atlas V rocket from SLC 41 from Cape Canaveral.
