May 21, 2012 by The Perfectly Imperfect One
Sunday May 20, 2012, a sight to see! Last nigh we watched the total eclipse of the sun. It started at 6:15PM and went until 8:30PM. We had the special glasses and I was even able to get some photos of the actual eclipse through the glasses. These pics aren’t the greatest, but it gives you a good idea of what we were seeing. The last one was in 1994, I was 12 years old and I used two toilet paper rolls taped together with duct tape on the ends with little holes poked into each end. The solar glasses were worth it! A friend of mine from work was able to give me two pair and boy did they come in handy. We even shared our glasses with our neighbors so they could enjoy this very rare sight. Once again, these pictures are not the greatest since I don’t have an awesome 5 million dollar lens or something LOL, but please enjoy nonetheless!
