Re: A place to be on May 20th 2012
My wife and I intended to drive up to Utah so we could get the full effect of the eclipse, but we were unable to do so. Instead we viewed it from our front yard where we were able to see 97% of the ring of fire. That was certainly impressive. I knew the daylight would get darker, but I never thought about the temperature actually decreasing. I wish I had checked the thermometer before, during and after the eclipse.
Now we want to watch the transit of Venus across the face of the sun on June 5-6th. We probably will need to find some with a good telescope to see that.
