Last night's solar eclipse did not disappoint its L.A. audience with passing clouds and haze over many L.A. skies during the spectacle that made for ideal viewing conditions of the natural phenomenon. Luckily, I happened to be on a rooftop in Venice at the perfect time when it was happening and it was quite as show from our perspective. Photos hardly do the imagery from last night's "Ring Of Fire" justice, but they're still pretty cool, so here's a collection of what the annual event looked like through the lenses of onlookers in and around the L.A. area.
