 Annular Solar Eclipse of 2012 May 20
 from the United States of America

To observe the 2012 May 20 annular eclipse, I had decided I would observe from a location near Page in Arizona, most likely somewhere around Lake Powell. Then for the June 5-6 Venus transit I was in Hawaii on the Big Island. For the annular you generally have two main options: observe either from the centerline to have a nice symetrical ring or else at the edges (northern or southern) to witness prolonged Baily’s beads.

You can use this solar eclipse calculator to compute the local circumstances of the eclipse, and the solar eclipse timer notifies the beginning of the various events. A time exposure calculator is there to help you choose your camera settings.
