Solar Eclipse


A few Sundays ago, we heard there was going to be a solar eclipse and the western part of the United States was going to have a pretty good show. We were told in Las Cruces that it would only be about 40 percent, but we took our chances anyway and went out to check it out.  Mike rode his bike up to the top of A Mountain while I ran it.  It’s so much harder to run it!



It was cool because the temperature changed so quickly and there was a haze around us. If you look at the picture with Mike, it almost looks like it is dark out.

We found out that the best thing to use besides the elementary school pinhole boxes is believe or not, old welding masks. A couple had some and shared with us and we were able to take a picture through it.

 

What a neat thing to witness! I’m so glad we did it!
