Coming on the day of the eclipse: LIVE IMAGES from one of our
What's Going to Happen?
On the afternoon of May 20, 2012, the western US will experience a solar eclipse. For most of the region, this will be a partial eclipse, but a small swath of the country will get to see an annular eclipse, where the Moon will block all but a small ring around the edge of the Sun.
Albuquerque, NM, will be in the middle of the path of the eclipse maximum. UNM will
host a free viewing event (see first link below). There will be continuously updated images
of the eclipse on this site! Various organizations throughout the area will also be
hosting events (see second link). There will be several pre-event lectures (see third link)
Protect your eyes! Looking directly at the Sun can damage your eyes. Sunglasses are NOT enough to protect your eyes. When observing an eclipse, always use a safe observing method such as a sun-rated viewer or a pinhole camera.
