Solar eclipse 2012: Readers share L.A. eclipse photos
We asked readers to submit photos and to tweet eclipse-watching adventures using the hash tag #LATeclipse. And you responded.
"my eyes! my eyes! my eyes for my art #LATeclipse," tweeted @k8tlyn.
The pictures came in from across Southern California, with people using various methods to view the rare event.
@JewelDole tweeted that she looked at the eclipse through her neighbor's 1905 sextant. "The owner used this same sextant (his grandfather's) to watch a total eclipse in Nova Scotia when he was a kid," she noted in her photo caption.
We hope you guys got a good look. The next best chance for such an impressive solar eclipse in Los Angeles will be in 2071. Sunday's eclipse was the closest Los Angeles will be to a full eclipse for the next 59 years, according to calculations by a NASA expert.
Keep reading to see more reader photos. And if you haven't sent it to us yet, tweet it to hashtag #lateclipse. Thanks for sharing!
