Tokyo Skytree Turns One
One year ago today, the Tokyo Skytree (東京スカイツリ) officially opened to the public. Standing 634 meters (2,080 feet), the Skytree is the tallest tower and the second largest structure in the world. The Skytree took four years to build and in the last year alone over 6.3 million people visited the tower—many capturing the experience on Instagram.
Here’s the last set of photos for the school year! Contributing photographers were @JaviChili @MDuris10 and @NoBigItsCaitlin
Happy finals everyone!
Instagrammers Capture “Ring of Fire” Solar Eclipse
The first annular solar eclipse of 2013 took place yesterday. The passage of the moon directly in front of the sun made it appear as though there were a “ring of fire” in the sky.
Instagrammers from Australia and the islands of the Southern Pacific Ocean—the only places where the eclipse was visible—shared photos of this spectacular sight.
