SOLAR ECLIPSE by KYBOE USA
A rare annular eclipse, where a ‘ring of fire’ outlines the moon as it crosses the sun, will greet US viewers Sunday evening. Residents of the US West will have a good shot at seeing the full fire ring.
The partial solar eclipse targeting L.A., beginning Sunday at 5:24 p.m. and reaching its maximum shadow at 6:38 p.m., will cover up about 85% of the sun’s diameter, leaving behind a very skinny C-shaped sun
As it is dangerous to look directly at the Sun, observers should use special eye protection or indirect viewing techniques. Remember, don’t look at the sun directly through anything less than No. 14 arc-welders glasses. Use projection devices instead, such as a hole pricked in a sheet of printer paper.

The next major solar eclipse in the US won’t come until August 21, 2017.
