May 20th, 2012 by Bret · 2 Comments

From 5:24 to 7:33 this evening, there will be a partial solar eclipse, the maximum shadow (85%) cast at 6:38 pm. This is the most complete solar eclipse that will be seen from Los Angeles for the next 59 years.

Solar Eclipse

To view the sun during the eclipse and see “the ring of fire”, protective glasses must be worn. Fortunately for Venice, Daniel Samakow of Danny’s, James Beach and the Canal Club trekked out to the valley yesterday and bought a bunch of solar eclipse glasses! You can get a pair at any of these locations with a minimum $5 donation, all monies will be donated to AIDS-LifeCycle 2012. Thanks to Danny for hooking Venice up!
