We're sorry. This audio clip is no longer available. A transcript has been made available.

San Diegans were treated to a partial solar eclipse Thursday afternoon.

The moon's path started to intersect with the light of the sun about 2:15 p.m. The peak of the eclipse was at 3:33 p.m., with the whole thing over at 4:42 p.m.

People turned out at the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center in Balboa Park to see the eclipse. Fleet staff were on hand to answer questions about the lunar event.

KPBS collected your pictures of the eclipse. You can see the images and comments below.
