Share your eclipse 2012 photos with PhotoBlog

Use #eclipsemsnbc hashtag on Twitter or Instagram to send PhotoBlog your photos of the eclipse.

If you’re going to be one of the millions of observers in the western United States witnessing this year’s annular eclipse on May 20, then we want to share your pictures with our readers. Whether you’re lucky enough to see the “Ring of Fire” or the picturesque partial eclipse, show us what you saw.

Remember safety first when you take pictures of the rare event, and familiarize yourself with NASA’s guide to photographing a solar eclipse. We'll be more interested in seeing what's around you and the people you're with, so be creative (be inspired by the eclipse slide show).

Submit your photographs on Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #ECLIPSEmsnbc or #eclipse2012. For you DSLR users, use the box below to submit your pictures.

We’ll select our favorites and publish a PhotoBlog post on Monday with Sunday’s best pictures, so stay tuned. Update: Click here to see the eclipse photos submitted by our readers.
