HondaJet sales soar

Honda Aircraft says its HondaJet has been ranked for the first time as the most-delivered jet in its category in the first half of this year. The subsidiary of American Honda Motor said it supplied 24 aircraft to customers in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and Europe between January and June. Deliveries of the seven-seater plane began in 2015. Honda Aircraft says it has a global market share of 40 percent for jets with 10 or fewer seats. It says customers are pleased with the jet’s performance*, comfort, fit, and finish. Honda Aircraft plans to boost annual production to about 80 planes from the current 50.

The HondaJet performance is very impressive. The ergonomic seats for the pilot help in the fatigue factor that is so important when you have a long mission.

Total solar eclipse across U.S.

People in the United States looked up to the sky and enjoyed a historic total eclipse of the sun on Monday. It passed through 14 states from Oregon to South Carolina. It’s the first time since 1918 that a total solar eclipse could be seen across the U.S.

皆既日食(皆既月食=total lunar eclipse)、全米を横断して

In Carbondale, Illinois, about 15,000 people gathered at a local university to view the cosmic event. Locals also held parties. Carbondale is one of the places where the moon blocked the sun for the longest time about two minutes and 40 seconds.

-That was so moving. It was extraordinary because you saw the clouds were in front of the sun right before, and then it just appeared.

Good whether meant the eclipse was visible in many places across the country.

*Extraordinary cosmic event

圧巻(超スゴイ!)、宇宙のイベント
