Wednesday, 26 May 2021 – The total lunar eclipse and the hazy moon

Good evening from Tokyo under the third time state of emergency.
Day 32.

Today’s morning glow was a fresh colour. I love beautiful morning sky. In the evening the total lunar eclipse happened. The lunar eclipse started at 18:45 and ended at 21:52 on Japan time. However, the sky in Tokyo was covered with clouds, so I couldn’t totally enjoy this special astronomical show. I only saw the hazy moon through the clouds at the end of the lunar eclipse. Today in Tokyo, it was a little hot in the daytime, but comfortable. It wasn’t raining and it was a day of mild climate. Now is the midnight, it’s chilly outside the window. My study is filled with the heat from the afternoon, making it feel like summer. Forecast for tomorrow is heavy rain.

A major Japanese news media company, the Asahi Shimbun (Asahi News), has published an editorial this morning to demand a decision from the Prime Minister to cancel the Olympics.


The Asahi Shimbun is a sponsor of the Tokyo Olympics. Several other big media companies are also sponsors of the Olympics and they haven’t yet called for the cancellation of the Olympics. Many people all over the country are accusing that these media companies are sycophants of the Government.

The big media companies in Japan that are sponsors of the Tokyo Olympics 2020 are as follows:
Asahi, Yomiuri, Mainichi, Nikkei, Sankei and Hokkaido Shimbun (Doshin)

People who received at least one shot of the vaccine in Japan
As of 25 May: 7,104,069 people

People who received vaccination in one day on 25 May
563,942 people

Good night. Have a nice dream.

Wear a mask and wash your hands.
Stay safe and healthy πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜·πŸ––πŸ––πŸ––πŸ––πŸ––
