This afternoon, there will be a partial solar eclipse, which you can check out for free at Griffith Observatory. The eclipse begins today at 2:07 p.m. and last until 4:39 p.m., CBS LA reports. The prime time to see it, however, is 3:27 p.m. The moon is expected to cover about two-thirds of the sun.

Those who go to Griffith Observatory will be able to use available telescopes for free and can purchase glasses to protect their eyes from the sun.

From 2 p.m. until 4:45 p.m., the Observatory will offer a live stream of the event here.

You can watch the partial eclipse at home safely using a pinhole projector, just like in grade school. Instructions to make one can be found here.
