And leave it to the Griffith Observatory to hold an event so you can see it:

Excitement is building over a rare “ring” eclipse that is expected to be visible in California and other parts of the Southwest.


The Griffith Observatory is set to hold a special eclipse-viewing event Sunday, and plans to sell affordable eclipse-viewing glasses and other devices that will project images of the eclipse on the ground. Regular sunglasses will not protect the eyes, said observatory spokeswoman Susan Szotyori.


Telescopes equipped with special filters will also be set up to help the public view the eclipse, officials said.
