Annular Eclipse

May 20, 2012

The Wainrights, Burkes, Sages, Palmers and Caleb along with
Daisy and Cotton went went to Page, AZ to view the Annular Eclipse.
We set up near the bridge overlooking Glen Canyon Dam.
The weather was warm and breezy. We used two solar projection devices,
one with a 50mm refractor and one with 10x50 binoculars.
The solar projection devices allowed everyone to enjoy the view.

Below is a series of images taken of the 50mm refractor projection.

Baily's beads flickered nicely during second and third contacts.
I wanted to enjoy the beads with my own eyes rather than take pictures.
These events are rare.
