Information on Sunday's Eclipse

On Sunday, Albuquerque residents and visitors will be treated to the rare sight of an annular solar eclipse.  The eclipse starts at 6:28 PM and continues until the sun sets.   KUNM’s Conservation Beat reporter Sidsel Overgaard spoke with Barry Spletzer with the Albuquerque Astronomical Society to learn more.

Albuquerque's Visitors Bureau offers a list of eclipse events happening throughout the region. Protective glasses are available at several of them.  If you don't have access to glasses or special viewing equipment, check out these websites for instructions on how to make pinhole viewers, simple complicated, and everything in between.
