This is a copy from the website tracking the documentation of the eclipse from the top of Mt. Fuji, but it explains the eclipse and where we are relative to it very well. We are not quite in the zone to see a total solar eclipse, but close to it!
So we set our alarms for 5:50 this morning as the event was supposed to begin shortly after 6:00 am. We were joined by some sleepy neighbors awaiting the spectacle.

But then the clouds started moving in which I thought was a bad thing, but it turned out to make it much better conditions for viewing the eclipse. Here are my awesome, eerie pictures...

What a cool way to start the morning!
