Eclipse 2012!!

The song that comes to mind is "Total Eclipse of the Heart" by Bonnie Tyler. Okay, I'm old I know!  My family and I had a blast tonight observing a 90% eclipse!



We are in southern Arizona and it started about 5:30pm.  My daughter was TOTALLY into it!  I had to draw a picture of what it was she was looking for.  After that she was totally engaged!


  Unfortunately it went behind the mountains before we saw the ring.  Either way it was still AWESOME to experience!  My students will get a kick out of the pictures tomorrow!
Our neighbors invited us over and they had these special lenses to look through!  I held the lens over my camera to take the pictures.  It wasn't easy that's for sure!  Hope you enjoy and were able to see it where you were.
