How Best To View The Eclipse?

Eclipse Will Sweep Some 3,000km Across The Continent Monday

While there is sunshine expected in the forecast, it may get pretty dark around these parts this afternoon. A solar eclipse today, as the moon passes between the Earth and the Sun. The eclipse will be at its peak in our region at 2:32pm, but it’s doing it at an angle that, here up north, it will only be a partial eclipse. Which means you’ll need eye protection for sure. Good thing we’ve got instructions from NASA on how to build your own pinhole cameraYou need white card stock, aluminum foil, tape, and a pin. For a detailed look at the path the eclipse will take across our continent, check out the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada’s website.
