Southern California -- this just in

See the total eclipse totally without leaving L.A.


It's being billed as this century's most dramatic total solar eclipse, but you have to be halfway across the world by this afternoon L.A. time to see it in person.

Fortunately, the Griffith Observatory is offering a more realistic option, showing a live webcast starting at 5:24 p.m. today, beamed from an island near Shanghai.

Our Daily Travel & Deal Blog has more details.
