First it was the Supermoon, now it's a solar eclipse.
Here's a minute-by-minute schedule for Sunday's rare "ring of fire" solar eclipse that hasn't been seen in the United States since 1994.
- 5:24 p.m.: Eclipse begins
- 6:38 p.m.: Maximum eclipse
- 7:42 p.m.: Eclipse ends
- 7:52 p.m.: Sunset
Unfortunately for Los Angeles, the best views of the "ring of fire" eclipse will be from Northern California around Eureka, Redding, the Sacramento suburbs, and Lake Tahoe, according to an article in the Los Angeles Times.
But Angelenos will still get an awe-inspiring view. The Griffith Observatory notes for LA, the moon will eclipse 86 percent of the sun's diameter, which will be the most "extensive" eclipse the city has seen since 1992.
Still, it's a lot more than the East Coast will see. They're going to miss the event entirely because the sun will set for them before the eclipse begins.
Will you watch the eclipse from somewhere in Montrose-La Crescenta?
