The annular solar eclipse

At about 7:30am this morning, an annular solar eclipse (when the moon crosses in front of the sun and leaves a `ring` visible from earth) could be seen from many parts of Japan. 

There were images on the news of old people, babies, salarymen, even pets wearing the funny eclipse glasses and standing in the streets all over the country!

Did you see it? I didn't!! Hahaha I was asleep and forgot all about it till I woke up and heard ALL the details from Yoshis mother. Oooops.

Here are some great pics I found though.. Enjoy!
