TORONTO – People who were lucky enough to have clear skies on Thursday afternoon were able to witness a somewhat rare event: a partial solar eclipse.
Unfortunately, most of Canada was clouded over. The place to be was southern Ontario where the eclipse occurred just as the sun was setting.
But this amateur astronomer had some good luck north of Calgary.
For roughly 45 minutes, those equipped with solar telescopes or eclipse glasses were able to safely watch the moon as it passed in front of the sun (we get the eclipse because we’re in the moon’s penumbra, or outer shadow).
