16 images Created 20 May 2012
An annular solar eclipse occurred over Tokyo on Monday May 21st 2012. This type of eclipse that creates a ring of fire around the silhouette of the moon reached its peak at 7:34am. The sky was cloudy with light rain at times but luckily for the children at schools and attractions along the path of the eclipse, the clouds thinned enough in some places for the event to be visible to them and viewed with special protective eye shades and glasses.
