白昼如夜 :: Nightly Day


(credit: Google China)

Just a few minutes, we experienced the full eclipse in Shanghai. Though it was raining and too cloudy to see the sun by myself, I was thrilled by the 5-minute-long experience from daylight to darkness and back to daylight.

The eclipse today was reported the best chance to observe as once in 300 years in Shanghai. It's very rare that the eclipse would move along most of the populated areas in China, from Tibet to Shanghai. Thanks to the modern media technology, the eclipse event is being broadcast live to the nation, covering different local cities, where the eclipse can be seen, one after another.

Here are a few photos I took at the moment of full darkness. Now I must run to work since the daylight is back on :)
