Those who are lucky enough to be going to stay in Tokyo next Monday, will have a chance to enjoy observe annular eclipse if the weather is OK. (Explanation about annular eclipse, you can read here.) Last chance of annular eclipse in Japan was Sep. 23, 1987 and happened only in Okinawa and next chance will be Jun. 1, 2030 and we have to go to Hokkaido to ovserve it. But this time we don’t need to go anywhere, we can watch it here in Tokyo, that’s why it is so precious occasion and many people in Japan are looking forward to this great event.
According to the forecast, the Sun will start to disappear at 6:19 am and annular eclipse will occur from 7:31 am for three minutes in Tokyo next Monday, May 21st, 2012.
