Annular solar eclipse of May 21, photos

Moon Shadow is unable to close observers of the Sun, as it does during a total eclipse, and it seems that a small dark circle slowly "floats" on the solar disk.Annular solar eclipse lasted until 5.39 am. Residents can enjoy the sight of the southwest coast of China and the southern islands of the Japanese archipelago. The maximum phase of the eclipse lasted only 5 minutes. In part, this phenomenon could watch people of the Far East of Russia. Last time in this region such eclipse occurred 932 years ago.
