I'm eagerly awaiting it in my area. I will be doing a full time lapse of it. It won't be the complete annular eclipse, but almost at 90% coverage. It will be finished just before the sun drops below the horizon. Should be beautiful! There is also the transit of Venus across the sun on June 6th, which I will also be time lapsing.

Will you be posting a video? That'd be great for those of us without the means.

Yes, it will be on my YouTube channel. I also captured the total lunar eclipse from December 2011. My channel page here is where you'll find it; more than likely the following day.

Where is your area? I am in Eureka, CA I'll probably get to see most of, provided it's not cloudy.

Partial eclipses do not count.

Annular is a full eclipse, although some might say it's a transit.

Annular eclipses do not count. Only total eclipses.

It's worth looking up a bit.
