Solar Eclipse 2012 (BEST VIEW)

Solar Eclipse 2012 (BEST VIEW) Experts said Sunday’s “ring” eclipse will be visible across a wide area, including in California. But certain parts of the state will get a better view than others.

The best view of the ring eclipse — which scientists call an “annular” eclipse, in which the moon completely blocks out the sun except for an annulus, or ring of fire, around the moon’s edge — is expected to be on the northern edge of California, near Eureka, Redding and the northern suburbs of Sacramento and Lake Tahoe.

The rest of California should nevertheless get a prime view of a partial eclipse on Sunday evening, with the moon blocking out 86% of the sun’s diameter in Los Angeles, according to Griffith Observatory officials.

In Los Angeles, the moon will begin to obscure the sun at 5:24 p.m. Sunday, reach its maximum coverage at 6:38 p.m. and exit the sun’s path at 7:42 p.m., just 10 minutes before sunset, observatory officials said.
