Annular Solar Eclipse

It's a miracle ring what celestial mechanics makes for a few minitues of the centuries at the specific place. Certainly I will not be able to see this perfect ring in my life time again, at least, in Tokyo.

I took this shot by very good fortune because I did not have a ND filter to decrease the strong sun light for a camera. The perfect clouds condition enabled me to take it.

The celestial ring hovered above dark fast-fleeting clouds. It looks like Japanese Sumi-e, ink-and-wash painting.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

A Solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between the Sun and the Earth. This can happen only during a new moon, when the Sun and the Moon are in conjunction as seen from Earth. There are four types of solar eclipses: A total eclipse, An annular eclipse, A hybrid eclipse and A partial eclipse.

The Earth revolves about the sun yearly and the Moon revolves about the Earth monthly. So if the Moon were in a circular orbit close enough to the Earth and in the same orbital plane, there would be total solar eclipses every single month. However, the Moon's orbit is angled at more than 5 degrees to the earth's orbit around the Sun so its shadow at new moon often misses the Earth. This factor makes an Eclipse rare phenomenon.

An Eclipse could occur roughly a few times in a year somewhere on the Earth. For example next Annular Eclipse will occur on 13 November 2012 at north Australia and Solomon Islands.

However at a specific place an Eclipse is very rare phenomenon.

For example, at Tokyo, the last Annular Eclipse occurred on 8 September 1839 (5:28-5:30). This time it occurred on 21 May 2012 (7:32-7:37). Next time it will occur on 8 April 2312 (6:56-6:59). I can’t see it in my life again, at least, in Tokyo.

There is a very old fantasy on the Moon, The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter (竹取物語 Taketori Monogatari), also known as Princess Kaguya (かぐや姫 Kaguya Hime). It's a 10th century Japanese folktale and the first texts of any culture to imagine that the Moon is an inhabited world and describe travel between it and the Earth.
It primarily details the life of a mysterious beautiful girl called Kaguya-hime, who was discovered as a baby inside the stalk of a glowing bamboo plant. She is said to be from The Capital of the Moon and has unusual hair that shines with a light like the moon.

'Ring of Fire' Solar Eclipse
On the same day that parts of the Earth witnessed a partial solar eclipse (Oct. 24, 2014), the Hinode X-ray Telescope (XRT) had its Sun sights blocked by a passing moon. This type of eclipse is also known as an annular eclipse.

An annular eclipse occurs when the moon passes directly in front of the sun but doesn't cover it completely because the moon appears too small. (The apparent size of the moon depends on its distance from Earth or, in this case, the spacecraft.) About one-third of all solar eclipses are annular.

Tonight’s Sky: November 2014
Your guide to constellations, deep-sky objects, planets and
events, Tonight's Sky,
Highlights of the November Sky

Evening Planets

After the sky grows dark, look for ruddy Mars above the
southwestern horizon.
A telescope might reveal the planet’s bright polar caps.

Constellations and Deep-Sky Objects

Some fish, a ram, and a triangle can all be found in the
November night sky.
Pisces, in ancient mythology, are twin fish tied together.
They represent two Greek gods fleeing fire.

Look for the circlets of stars high in the southern sky.
Just to the east of Pisces lies Aries, the golden ram of the
Greek gods. It is a dim constellation.

Pisces and Aries are in the zodiac, the band of sky through
which the Sun appears to travel.Tonight’s Sky: November 2014 2

Triangulum, a simple geometric constellation, has been
identified since ancient times. Look for it next to the Ram
and the Fish.

The lovely Triangulum Galaxy resides here. It belongs to the
same cluster of galaxies that includes our own Milky Way.
Also known as M33, the galaxy is about 3 million light-years
distant. It can be seen in a dark sky with binoculars.

Morning Planets

Jupiter rises in the east after midnight and stays up the rest
of the night.
Use a telescope to admire its colorful bands.

Ever-elusive Mercury appears very low in the east before
sunrise during the first half of the month.
Challenge yourself to find it in the morning twilight.

Events

November boasts the Leonid meteor shower. This shower is
the result of Earth’s annual passage through the dust trails
left by Comet Tempel-Tuttle, which returns to the inner solar
system every 33 years.
Tonight’s Sky: November 2014 3
Look for meteors on the evening of November 17th and early
morning of November 18th, when the peak occurs. Expect to
see as many as 40 meteors per hour in dark skies.

A relatively rare hybrid solar eclipse will darken areas of the
mid-Atlantic ocean and central Africa. A hybrid eclipse can
be either a total or an annular eclipse, depending on the
observer's location.


The night sky is always a celestial showcase. Explore its
wonders from your own backyard.
