Our Photos from the Annular Solar Eclipse May 2012

Brighton Astronomy Group Solar Photos:

We had an awesome yesterday in UT. I got to see my first Annular Solar Eclipse.
We made some new friends. Some of the things we noticed during the eclipse were of course the change in the light. We also watched the temperature change from 85 degrees Fahrenheit to 71 degrees Fahrenheit.
I have placed some photos in our Gallery of our Web Site under Astrophotography, then Solar.

    Good to meet you as well my friend. I was crossing my fingers hoping we’d meet a Pro who had a serious telescope. (and we did!)
    Thank you for letting us crowd around your equipment.
    This Annular Solar Eclipse was totally worth our 300 mile drive from SLC and meeting up with you was very much the icing on the cake.
    One curiosity my brother first observed at our location and then pointed out to me while we were sitting there watching the ring of fire: just before maximum began around 19:33 MDT, the birds in the distance stopped tweeting and chirping. I think they were confused due to the change in sunlight so it became eerily silent for a short few minutes. Just a spectacular event all around. Thanks again for sharing!

    Your Welcome, I was glad we had some to share with. We stayed untile the sun went down behind the hill in the west. We noticed also the crickets were stating to make nosie to. I have heard of chickens going to roost durning solar eclipse to.
    Keep in touch. Did you see the pictures in the gallery I will be adding the rest later. How did your photos finaly turn out. The next big event is the transit of Venus.

    Hi Wes,
    Cloud cover here in Centerville, UT until 15-20 minutes before sunset. Then I got a view of Venus!
    I shot some video with my camera on May 20th and finally uploaded –> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iFx9t0R-_AY
    The video turned out better than my pics.

    Is it ok if we Link your video to our Blog???

    I set up the live feed from NASA at our local Library and brought some Solar Glass so we could look at the transit of Venus when we had a break in the clouds.
    It was real windy here for the venus transit, and mostly cloudy. It was proable better viewing at Cedar City.
