Eclipse visible in Tsu – May 21, 2012 — Annular Solar Eclipse

The animation shows what the eclipse approximately looks like in Tsu

This annular solar eclipse is fully visible in Tsu.

Observers there can experience the “ring of fire” that is characteristic for this kind of solar eclipse.

The eclipse is also visible in other areas, but the Moon does not move centrally in front of the Sun there and the “ring of fire” is not visible.
