Eclipse Rules

For those of you who were lucky enough to get to see the solar eclipse today, how cool was that?! I don't know what the build up for the eclipse was like in other countries, but I can tell you that Japan had its residents prepared and excited weeks in advance. Our city hall had a huge slide show of how to properly watch the eclipse.

I don't think you need to understand the language
to know what this is telling you.
How not to watch the eclipse.
Can you even see through a CD?
The nifty shades were for sale just about everywhere and cost upwards of 10 bucks. Does that seem expensive to anyone else? The eclipse passed over us at about 7:30 this morning and most of the students, and residents, diligently stood outside to observe this unique natural happening.

I live right next to the top/Tokyo one.
It was a pretty awesome spectacle, made even more so since it won't be coming around again in our lifetime.
Pretty nifty.

P.S. Even google got in on the action.
