These Eclipse Photos Capture a Brief Moment When All of L.A. Gazed Upon the Heavens as One

We’re all just hurtling through the vastness of space and time. With weird glasses on.

You couldn’t find NASA approved eye protection? You didn’t have time to turn a cereal box into a pinhole camera? Don’t worry, we’ll show you what you missed. When the solar eclipse peaked over Los Angeles around 10:21 a.m. this morning, we weren’t on the path of totality, but even a partial eclipse proved a valid excuse to blow off work and head outdoors. Below are some of the best eclipse photos taken by people in the L.A. area.
