    Annular Solar Eclipse in the West: Your Plans?

    Hi all,

    We're gonna have one hell of a show this Sunday as the moon blocks out most of the sun for a stretch across from Oregon to Texas. I was curious as to the plans people have for this event?

    I myself have the Santa Fe Century bike ride that morning...so I hope I get done in time, but I plan on driving out to Chaco canyon and shooting some ruins with teh crescent/ring of the sun in the Western horizon.

    So, what's your big plan? Anyone gonna be able to be at the Grand Canyon, Bryce, Zion? Anything?

    Stay home and save the travel costs. A partial will be visible from here just before sunset.

    Might do Zion, PM me though if you are serious about Chaco, I am in Aspen and might make the drive with my wife in our spaceship....

    The show from my front porch was just fine and there were a couple of homebrews (ale, not developer) to go with it. Sun was eclipsed about ten degrees over the Jemez Mtns. against a clear sky after passing behind a small cloud bank.

    Dang, you beat me -- all I had was a 600mm Nikon lens (but just now remembered I had a 12-21-28 TR I could have used!) Stayed at home -- some light clouds with breaks in between. Got a couple shots with the Rolleiflex of eclipses on the side of the house thrown thru the leaves of the plum tree.

    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.
