Schools were closed for a half day to day in Japan to allow the students to see the full solar eclipse over Japan... Needless to say it is a very rare event... That the skies were cloudy in May in Japan, on the other hand, is not a rare event.

My son and the other neighborhood kids were out watching the total eclipse.... Me? I was hungover and still in bed....Quite unenthusiastic about the entire thing really... What? No re-runs?
Being born in the 50s, I had always thought these things only happened in black and white...
