10:21 a.m.

Here in Los Angeles, which is not being treated to totality, the Great American Eclipse will begin around 9:05 a.m. It will peak at 10:21 a.m., at which point the moon will briefly cover 70% of the sun's diameter and 62% of the sun's area. Here are some places to watch around L.A. (though we can assure you that Griffith Park is already beyond crowded). The eclipse will end at 11:44 a.m.
