Partial Solar Eclipse 2012

This afternoon there was a solar eclipse but we only saw a partial one.  It was way cool.  I haven't seen one since I was in grammar school going out onto the playground with our pin hole boxes.  First hubby had a box with a pin hole to view it but that was too small so then he set up the telescope and had it reflect onto a bankers box lid.  Our son has never seen a solar eclipse so he was very excited to see his first one. It was fun viewing the eclipse.  I wish we could have seen a full solar eclipse.  The people North of us got to see a full one.  Maybe someday I will see a full one but for now it was still cool seeing a partial one and sharing it with my son and hubby.
