Lacking the patience to sit in traffic going up to the Griffith Observatory (its website warns of "heavy traffic and parking congestion") I decided to make a device with which to watch the solar eclipse, which is due to start at 5:24 p.m. PDT.
I made a solar eclipse viewer by following these instructions. Remember, never look directly at the sun.
I'll be uploading photos of the eclipse as it happens!
