A copper moon is seen above Tokyo Skytree in the capital's Sumida Ward on the night of Jan. 31, 2018. People across the country enjoyed viewing a total eclipse of the moon for the first time in about three years, though the celestial pageant was not available in some areas due to weather conditions. According to the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan, the total eclipse lasted for 1 hour and 17 minutes until 11:08 p.m. The next such lunar show will be observed in Tohoku and areas west of the region in the predawn hours of July 28.
