If you're on the West Coast, you might have noticed that tonight the sky suddenly got a little darker than usual this evening. We experienced a partial solar eclipse, and NASA said it was the best one Los Angeles has seen since 1992.

The "Ring of Fire" was visible all the way from Asia to the western United States. L.A. got a chance to view it between 5:24 p.m. and 7:42 p.m. through telescopes, pinhole projectors and iPhones, of course. Thanks to readers who submitted their beautiful photos!
