Eclipse pics from Japan
Ok, I didn’t have eclipse glasses, but the cloud cover gave me a chance to see the main part of the eclipse without going blind!
Here are some shots of the eclipse as seen from Inagekaigan, Chiba, Japan. The sun was peeking out every few minutes from the clouds, so I could only get the shots at those times. And the shots are all a bit dark and mysterious…kind of like those elusive Bigfoot pics you used to see growing up. Anyway, here they are.
Photo 1: Just before the full eclipse
Photo 2: Tiny (not sure why my camera did a low res shot). This is almost right at the peak.
Photo 3: Just past the main eclipse
Photo 4:Also just past
Although looking through the clouds didn’t bother my eyes, I’m still half blind from looking just for a brief second after the clouds parted, and that was 30 minutes ago. Doh!
Yea… I was pretty bummed about the clouds this morning but it really saved my eyes!! I got a good view without the filter…..
My eyes feel alittle funny…. I was seeing green dots for a while…
Hey, I see green dots all the time. WTF? You mean that ain’t normal? lol
Actually, I got a blast that blinded me when the clouds went away, so naturally I googled it to easy the hypochondriac tendencies I inhered from my mom…turns out that in the morning, you would need to stare at the sun for about 90 seconds to do any really permanent damage…or about 2 seconds if you are using binoculars, etc. So the green spots will only be temporary…one hopes!
actually i want to go to JAPAN. i am an Arashi fan. you know that band?
Yeah, I don’t really follow J-pops any more. I’m more of a DJ Tiesto and Armin van Buuren fan these days. 😉
Beautiful capture.. picture showing light full moon can be more clear?
