Solar eclipse-tyme

The sun is covered about 30% as I am writing this. The whole sun will be covered in about 50 mins time. It will pass through Kikai island south of Japan, north of Okinawa island chains. The last solar eclipse was 46 years ago. After calculations, the next solar eclipse might pass over Tokyo in 26 year's time.

The sky up my head is dark suddenly. I thought it might rain but it's the side-effect of the moon slowly covering the sun.

If you guys in Malaysia get this message now, go out and check the sun immediately.
Maybe make solat dhuha or solat sunat matahari gerhana.

Time: 11.30 am- The moon cover the sun completely. NHK is making a live view of the whole event. Kikai island is covered in darkness. The temperature drops 4c. All the star admirers coming in from around world are gathered and all pointing their giants scope towards the sky. The people on Kikai islands are outside their houses. The people in my neigbourhood are hanging out on the street. We just want to be a part of this great phenomena. The sun is covered for 6 minutes only. The whole sky is dark.
Tomo said all teachers stopped the classes in campus and they went to the ground outside to witness the show of the universe.

Nota kaki: Dilaporkan cengkerik di bumi dan unggas di langit tidak berlagu dan bersuara selama 7-10 minit tatkala buana ini dalam kegelapan. Subhana-Allah!



  1. Salam Kak Lela...saya di Kuala Lumpur langsung tak dapat tengok sebab cuaca di sini berjerebu. tak dapat nak gambarkan perasaan bagaimana dapat menyaksikan gerhana penuh itu. saya cuma dapat tengok gambar-gambar gerhana ini yang dirakam di India dan China pagi tadi.
