Update 5/21/2012: So Sunday I totally missed the eclipse from East Marysville since it was cloudy and rainy with no breaks in the clouds. I was disappointed so I have to live vicariously through others and post links to pictures and blog posts. Here is what I have found Monday morning about Washington’s solar eclipse.

As a total space geek and all around general nerd, I am super excited to see Sunday’s Ring of Fire solar eclipse. After doing some research it appears that Washington will not see a full Ring of Fire eclipse. However, a partial solar eclipse could be visible. The weather forecast is calling for rain on Sunday – grrr – so we may not get lucky even though it has been sunny since last week. Phooey!
According to NationalGeographic.com
Due to the time zone change, the eclipse makes landfall again in North America in the late afternoon of May 20, starting at the California-Oregon border at 6:26 p.m. PT.
Update 10:22pm: King5.com just reported that the partial solar eclipse will start at 5:02pm and end around 7:20pm. Start looking at the sky, if the clouds part, around 5pm and … wait for it …
Thanks to Space.com, I found the image below showing the path of totality. As you can see, the path of totality is on our friendly neighbors to the south, Oregon and California. So, if we Washingtonians are lucky enough to have break in the clouds then we should see a decent partial eclipse.
