Sunday’s Solar Eclipse – Video From Japan [VIDEO]

I don’t know if you are one of those people who enjoys all the marvels of the space and sky above us…But I am! So yesterday at about 6:30pm I start getting anxious knowing that the solar eclipse is about to begin!I get my 2 pieces of paper ready(one with a pinhole in it), so I can safely “see” the eclipse while not ruining my eyesight by looking directly at the sun. In the process I also found out that if you point your binoculars(with one lens capped) at the sun, you will get a larger & crisper image than with the paper method! I quickly found out that while still very cool to look at, the eclipse from my house left a lot to be desired. I went on the internet to see what I could find as far as live coverage went…it was less than I had expected to find with most feeds being iffy at best! This video is among the best, and if you didn’t get a chance to look at it when it was happening…you can here!

 

From Wikipedia:
An annular solar eclipse took place on May 20, 2012 (May 21, 2012 for local time in Eastern Hemisphere), with a magnitude of 0.9439. A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun, thereby totally or partially obscuring the image of the Sun for a viewer on Earth. An annular solar eclipse occurs when the Moon’s apparent diameter is smaller than the Sun, causing the Sun to look like an annulus (ring), blocking most of the Sun’s light. An annular eclipse appears as a partial eclipse over a region thousands of kilometres wide. This is also known as Ring of Fire.[1]
