2012 Annular Eclipse

Today we learned that looking at an eclipse is fun!
Of course you need to be careful, which we were, but we also had fun too.
Fun glasses - these are designed specifically to protect you eyes when looking at the sun. 

The pin hole viewer... a great idea, especially for little kids who shouldn't be starting at the sun!

The half a circle is the shadow of the moon moving in front of the sun. 

 Our first picture - through the glasses

As we reached the peak... 

The ring of fire - the main event!
