Partial Solar Eclipse May 20th 2012 Los Angeles

Not the greatest or most exciting piece of video but I did not have my remote shutter for a proper time lapse nor proper setup time for this shot. I just hit the record button. Thanks for watching!

I was not able to capture a true annular, aka ring of fire eclipse, from where I was at in the city of Sylmar CA.

An annular eclipse occurs when the Sun and Moon are exactly in line, but the apparent size of the Moon is smaller than that of the Sun. Hence the Sun appears as a very bright ring, or annulus, surrounding the outline of the Moon.
