I joined a couple thousand others at University of New Mexico's Johnson Field for the eclipse. A few hot air balloons drifted over from the Balloon Festival - one landed on the field! - and thin high clouds cleared for the eclipse itself. Johnson Field was also the site of release of one of the weather balloons of the Nationwide Eclipse Ballooning Project. It was a beatiful day and everyone cheered as annularity commenced - a lot of fun for everyone!
