For the 2012 solar eclipse, Albuquerque happened to be one of the few places in the world that you could see the full eclipse. How often does that happen? My parents invited Sam and I to go see it at my aunt and uncle's house, where another one of my uncles set up a telescope. My parents also bought those solar glasses so you can stare at the sun safely. It was pretty darn awesome. Sam got a few pictures on his iPhone through the telescope.
At my aunt and uncle's house
The Ring of Fire!
Don't know when I could experience something like this again.
