Millions of people across Asia and the western United States watched as a rare 'ring of fire' eclipse crossed their skies. The annular eclipse, in which the moon passes in front of the sun leaving only a golden ring around its edges, was seen in the western U.S. late Sunday afternoon and in Asia early Monday. In some parts of the U.S., special camera filters for taking photographs have been sold out for weeks in anticipation of the big event.
Doctors and education officials have warned of eye injuries from improper viewing.
Before the event started, Japan's Education Minister Hirofumi Hirano demonstrated how to use eclipse glasses in a televised news conference.
Police also cautioned against traffic accidents - warning drivers to keep their eyes on the road.

Logre verlo por ratitos porque se nublo justo a la hora de la puesta de sol. me llamo la atencion lo brillante que estaba el sol, nunca antes lo habia visto asi de brilloso. Lo vi a traves de dos ventanas polarizadas en mi habitacion, porque si lo miraba de frente me quedaba viendo muchos solecitos y no los hijitos de Luismi precisamente. Pero estuvo bien lindo.
