Do you live in the path of the eclipse?

Solar eclipse

Yep. Just before 630 on Sunday in certain places in the northern hemisphere, the moon will pass directly in front of the sun. We here in Reno, Nevada are in a particularly great position to view this occurrence.

On Sunday evening, May 20, 2012, Reno will be one of a few cities in the world where an annular solar eclipse will be visible in its entirety (weather permitting!) in perfect alignment. The Fleischmann Planetarium and Science Center will host a viewing event to watch this spectacular occurrence, where the Sun and the Moon will be exactly in line and — because the Moon’s apparent size is smaller than the Sun — the Sun will show as a bright ring (annulus) surrounding the Moon.

Don’t look at the sun during the eclipse. You will go blind. This isn’t like those empty threats from your sunday school teacher. It’ll actually happen. I’m not even going to tell my 2 year old sun about it. I’ll just try to take some photos and tell him about it all later.

Get some eclipse viewing glasses at either Fleischmann Planetarium or tomorrow morning at Learning Express Toys.

Great News! We have secured a shipment of 4,000 pairs of Eclipse Viewing Glasses to be delivered on Saturday via Fed X Priority. Due to the overwhelming reponse we will be unable to reserve any glasses that are scheduled to arrive on Saturday. We will post on Facebook as they arrive at each location. [Learning Express Toys]
