An annular solar eclipse will occur on May 20, 2012, and Albuquerque, NM is on the central path.
According to Astronomy Lab 2:
Albuquerque, NM Latitude: 35°05'01" N Longitude: 106°39'05" W Local Time = UT - 7.00 hours Elevation: 1507 meters Solar Eclipse Report for 2012 Solar eclipse on 5/20/2012 Sun rise: 4:59 Sun set: 19:08 Time of maximum eclipse: 16:53 Eclipse is annular Eclipse is visible in the northern hemisphere Solar eclipse on 11/13/2012 Sun rise: 6:40 Sun set: 17:02 Time of maximum eclipse: 15:12 Eclipse is total Eclipse is visible in the southern hemisphere The time of maximum eclipse (above) does not necessarily specify when the eclipse will be maximal when viewed from the specified location. To see how the eclipse will look at the specified location, run a Planetarium movie of the eclipse.
I taught myself Windows application development in the early 1990s by writing Astronomy Lab. Back then, although there were several programs that did a wonderful job displaying planetarium animations, apps like Astronomy Lab that could predict or graph astronomical phenomena were rare.
