I got to experience the annular eclipse this morning and it was amazing.
What I saw with my eyes were much clearer than these photos – I didn’t expect it to be that clear, so it was a nice surprise.
There were kids from Nagoya – they were on a school trip and staying at the same hotel with Rachel & Warren. The teacher and kids were so nice that they let us borrow their screens and special glasses for seeing the eclipse. We were lucky to have met them because without the screen or glasses it just looked like this:
The kids were excited to have pictures taken with Warren and their photos posted on his blog He kept signing his blog address on their student handbooks (生徒手帳). Good PR!
It was a fun morning with a very beautiful view of the sun and an unexpected encounter.
