This morning, the whole Japan stopped for a few minutes to watch the Solar Eclipse. You know how in the movies, when there is an alien invasion or a deadly comet approaching the Earth, all people suddenly stop whatever they were doing and point at the sky? Well, it was exactly like that. Very creepy and beautiful.

I watched it from my balcony for a few seconds. I didn’t have glasses and my husband was particularly against me looking at it without protection so instead, I turned to the TV. It was on all the 12 channels. ^-^

Last eclipse took place 173 years ago in Japan so it was a very big deal to witness it. Some speculate that today at exactly 6PM the sky will turn red due to some sort of alignment with the Sun. I don’t know how accurate this prediction is, let’s see! ^-^
