Ring of Fire: Solar Eclipse As Seen from Japan

Last Monday morning, I woke up at 7am to view the Annular Solar Eclipse, which happened for the first time in 25 years here in Japan. While viewing it happen from our veranda, we were also watching it on TV.

It's the best solar eclipse I've ever seen! The moon didn't cover the entire disc of the sun which made a "ring of fire" visible. The surroundings turned partially dark. From our place, in Suwa City, Nagano, the moon was slowly covering the sun from 7am to 7:30am. But from 7:30am to 7:35pm, the ring of fire was seen, and the moon quickly left the perfect ring shape as it went down to uncover. I felt so lucky to have seen it!

Since I wasn't equipped with perfect gadgets to capture the actual view, I just took a photo of what's being shown on TV. It's a one of a kind experience!:)
