Skywatcher Tom Bridges took this photo of the solar eclipse on May 20, 2012. He writes: “I live in Tokyo on the 25th floor of a building. The weather was partly cloudy…. I did not use any filters (due to the clouds helping out). This is just what I got on my Nikon D5100.”

The European Space Agency’s Proba-2 space weather satellite observed the annular solar eclipse on May 20, 2012. The event was used to assess the intensity of stormy “active regions” across the sun’s face and to check the performance of Proba-2’s SWAP imager.
