I drove up to a spot near Lake Tahoe for the annular eclipse on the evening of May 20th, 2012. Unfortunately, I didn’t plan ahead and get the necessary solar filters to do any photography work — and checking around the couple of days before the event proved fruitless. But at least I had binoculars so I could set up a projection to watch it.
My little arrangement makes me think of the robot from the movie Short Circuit. Hmm, I suppose Wall-E too.
