Anticipation is building as the solar eclipse on Sunday draws near. In LA, we will see a partial, crescent-shaped eclipse, with the moon covering about 85% of the sun’s diameter! Check out this NASA Google map for more information on locations.
Wondering what a solar eclipse is? There are three different kinds, but Sunday’s solar event is an “annular solar eclipse,” where the Moon is at the farthest distance from Earth. Remember the Supermoon a few weeks ago? It’s exactly the opposite!
If you find yourself in the Los Angeles area on Sunday, May 20, you may want to check out The Griffith Observatory. A special eclipse-viewing event will be happening and the observatory will be selling eclipse-viewing glasses and other devices that will project images of the eclipse on the ground.
Have you seen a solar eclipse before?
