A rare solar eclipse occurred Sunday—with the moon blocking out the sun completely except for ring of fire—and the next such phenomenon won't be seen until 2071.
The following photos come from two souces:
The ones directly of the eclipse come from Eagle Rock photojournalist Henk Friezer photographed the occurrence from the porch of his Eagle Rock home without the aid of filters or other enhancing photographing aids. He recorded the celestial evebt in its natural state from about 6:25 p.m. to 6:55 p.m. He did not witness the touted "ring of fire," though, which was evidently not visible locally.
The ones of the eclipse filtering through the shadows of trees come from Altadena resident Lori Paul.
