Curious sky gazers looked onward as a solar eclipse unfolded on a darkening SoCal sky, Sunday.
The annular eclipse began in the Los Angeles area at 5:25 p.m. The moon moved at snails pace across the sun, covering over half of it in utter darkness. The annular eclipse is named as such, because the moon's apparent diameter is smaller than that of the sun, leaving a ring of firey light to remain, according to National Geographic.com.
Although the Los Angeles area was not in the direct path of the eclipse, onlookers were still treated to a show. The eclipse looked more like a crescent moon when the it reached totality at 6:38 p.m.
The L.A. area will not see another annular eclipse until 2023.
