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.

It's eclipse season, and on April 29 around 06:00 UT the shadow of the new Moon will reach out and touch planet Earth, though only just. Still, if you're standing on the continent of Antarctica within a few hundred kilometers of 79 degrees 38.7 minutes South latitude and 131 degrees 15.6 minutes East longitude you could see an annular solar eclipse with the Sun just above the horizon. Because the Moon will be approaching apogee, the most distant point in the elliptical lunar orbit, its apparent size will be too small to completely cover the solar disk. A rare, off-center eclipse, the annular phase will last at most 49 seconds. At its maximum it could look something like this "ring of fire" image from last May's annular solar eclipse, captured by a webcast team operating near Coen, Australia. Otherwise, a partial eclipse with the Moon covering at least some part of the Sun will be seen across a much broader region in the southern hemipshere, including Australia in the afternoon.
