It’s quite gorgeous that plural astronomical coincidences have been occurred in this month, May 2012, in Japan.
A super-moon (full moon with its closest approach) on 6th, and an annular solar eclipse (conjunction of the Sun and the Moon) yesterday already… , on 21st.
Here are some photos of each rare Earth-nearby event.
For all who visit & take a rest here, and for myself to recall & re-enjoy these events after a/some decade(s).
☆ Super-moon on 5-6 May : スーパームーン
It was clearly bigger and brighter than usual.
No-cloud fine night was helping me a lot to shoot it.
☆ Solar eclipse at 7:30 AM, 21 May : 金環・部分日食
