The Eclipse from Tokyo

It’s been seven years since the last time I had the opportunity to see an annular eclipse. That time it was in Calpe (my hometown); this time, in Tokyo, I didn’t have my friend Albert here with his telescope and his astronomy knowledge, so I was not so well prepared; but with some Mizar glasses I had the chance to see it when the clouds let me around 7:35am.

One of the most popular photos of the eclipse is this photo by @ryuki_guilty15. He took it just before the eclipse became annular and a plane was passing by.
