Solar eclipse!

On Sun (in N. America)/Mon (in East Asia) (i.e., "yesterday"), there was a near-total solar eclipse that was visible in many populated regions of the world. Not in Michigan, though... Still, here are some photos of the event.

Via Danny Choo in Tokyo, Japan. A mere annulus of a sun:

Via The Daily Dish, taken in Santa Monica, CA. Although entitled "Annular", it's more "Crescent":

In Michigan... not so much of a view of this rare event. Still, thanks to these "series of tubes", I can see something of what it must have been like.
