Annual Solar Eclipse

Annual Solar Eclipse

Taken in Japan

Millions of Asians watched as a rare “ring of fire” eclipse crossed their skies early Monday.

The annual eclipse, in which the moon passes in front of the sun leaving only a golden ring around its edges, was visible to wide areas across the continent. It will move across the Pacific and also be seen in parts of the western United States.

In Japan, “eclipse tours” were arranged at schools and parks, on pleasure boats and even private airplanes.

The eclipse was broadcast live on TV in Tokyo, where such an eclipse hasn’t been visible since 1839.

  1. Took it by yourself? Wow, what a rare experience! I missed the eclipse. Too bad people in my country don’t make such phenomenon a big deal. I’m not sure it was visible from here, though.
