Solar Eclipse on May 20, 2012 from Santa Fe, New Mexico.

It was amazing to see so many taken by the sky this evening. It seemed that everywhere I looked, droves of people stood staring in awe as the eclipse started to steal vision from those who cared to catch a glimpse. By 7:35pm the eclipse could be seen as an actual ring of fire. My son thought there was a “hole in the sun.” You could see people holding hands, and pinhole punched papers to the sun. There were cameras, videos and tripods galore in Santa Fe. What a great sight. There is truly nothing as spectacular as the wonders of the natural world. It always makes me feel so small. Seeing two great celestial bodies collide in unison makes me realize that Earth is really just a small place in this vast universe. These intricacies which surround me make me feel lucky to be alive, lucky to have eyes, lucky to witness something awesome. I took a photograph, or two, or three or maybe twenty, still none of them could do justice to that which I captured with my naked eyes. I also found some video footage posted by someone in Albuquerque. A blinding eclipse— it burned my eyes, touched my soul, and melted my heart. If you didn’t see it, you should have.

Will You See Today’s Annular Solar Eclipse?
by Ian O’Neill
“Just in case you haven’t heard, an annular eclipse will dazzle the Pacific Ocean on Sunday (Monday in Asia); beginning at dawn for China and Japan, ending at sunset for western U.S. states — marching from the Oregon and Northern California coast to Nevada, Utah, **New Mexico**, Arizona and Texas. For U.S. eclipse watchers, the path of “annularity” — or the annular eclipse “ring of fire” — will be seen from locations such as Medford, Oregon; Chico, California; Reno, Nevada; St. George, Utah; Albuquerque, New Mexico, and Lubbock, Texas, according to Spaceweather.com. The whole event will begin in the U.S. from 5:30 p.m. PST and last for around 2 hours. Sadly for eastern U.S. states, the eclipse will occur after sunset, hence the focus on the West Coast.”
