In SATPC32 - use the "S" option to turn the "Sun Line ON/OFF" and status of
satellite will show "SAT in SUN" or "SAT in ECLIPSE" beside your QTH
co-ordinates in top left corner.

Thus, the satellite may be over the dark side of the earth while its
elevation will put it up into the sun.

Very handy for AO-7 too.

Can't give you specific info as you didn't tell us your QTH.  Need more than
just the 4 character grid square.

I have a couple passes tonight, but I'm not sure if Delfi-C3 will be in
eclipse or not. Can someone tell me?

My first pass begins at about 0342 UTC, and the second begins at about
0516 UTC.
