Solar eclipse 2012 creates social media photo frenzy
The "ring of fire" solar eclipse has become a social media event, with images of the rare event shared on Facebook, Twitter and other Web applications.
In Los Angeles, the partial eclipse was captured in backyards, roofs and parks -- as well as from such landmarks as Staples Center before the Clippers game, Dodger Stadium, Hollywood Boulevard and Griffith Park and even on freeways.
The eclipse is supposed to last until 7:42 p.m.
Here are some images from Times reporters around the L.A. area. To join in, share your photos via Twitter using the hashtag #lateclipse.
