Japan solar eclipse 2012 日本的金環日食2012

I woke up early at 6.45am to catch the first annular solar eclipse of my life! Without brushing my teeth and eating breakfast, I dashed downstairs to catch the sun and moon in action. Luckily it wasn't that cloudy. (photo taken with solar eclipse glasses)

今早6.45起床,沒刷牙,沒吃飯就換衣出門看日食了。還好家樓下就看得到,而且雲朵也沒那麼厚,真爽。(照片通過特製日食眼鏡拍的)

While happily using my special 480yen solar glasses to see the solar eclipse, a group of 1 uncle and 2 aunties passed by and started to chit chat with me about it. So I lent them my glasses and they were thrilled. One of the uncle invited us to go up to his building to get a better view, so we all followed.
我用480日元的特製日食眼鏡觀賞。才剛開始觀賞就碰到附近的歐吉桑歐巴桑軍團,因為心情特好,所以就借他們看看。歐吉桑很高興地邀請大家到他家屋頂看看,所以大家也就跟去了。

That uncle lives on the 8th floor and I could see my room from there! So he made coffee for me and another auntie offered her special plum in exchange for lending them my solar glasses. (I should have tidied my hair because uncle guessed that I was a housewife... ...) So we chit chatted a bit and they were looking around to shout at other neighbors, who were also out to view the solar eclipse with their special glasses.
歐吉桑住8樓,從他那裡可以看到我的房間!!!他們還請我喝咖啡,吃酸梅...  就這樣我輪流借我的日食眼鏡給他們看。(歐吉桑竟然猜我是家庭主婦了...可惡...早知道整理一下頭髮再出門)

 ...and finally, the grand solar eclipse!!! :DDDDD
結果就這樣慢慢等到金環日食了!

Luckily the clouds were thin and for a moment, you could see the gold ring with your naked eyes!
還好烏雲並沒那麼厚!

Soon after, it became more and more cloudy and difficult to see the eclipse. The uncles and aunties gang retreated but I stayed on for a while before packing up to leave. It was great! :D
之後就越來越霧了,還好之前看夠了。收工!

  3. Wooot...nice pics. Last time I saw a solar eclipse was back in 1996...woow times does fly. Why on earth do people aorund you don´t find it amusing?! I mean, birds actually go to sleep and have the shortest night sleep ever and wake up cranky and roosters start singing...I guess you didn´t hear them being in Tokyo and all...but it happens :P

    1. I think because they were busy rushing their reports XD
      Well no roosters here, but lots of stray cats. They're freakin noisy when Spring comes... you know why... ...

  4. I managed to completely miss it ...
    I was up at that time, but didn't have any special glasses, so I couldn't dare to look ... and of course my photos also didn't work out without the special glasses!!!
    Too bad ;o;
