By now everyone should know that on Monday there will be a total solar eclipse, and it will be visible across all of North America, crossing the continental United States and Canada from coast to coast.
Here in Canada will be mostly visible at 70% – 80% which will be a very good show.
In Ottawa, the eclipse will begin at around 1:30pm EST, peak at 2:35pm, and finish at 3:30pm
By now most of the available solar filters from reputable companies (list here, and be careful of counterfeits) are out of stock, so if you feel crafty, here is your next best option.
And please use common sense and NEVER watch directly the sun or without proper protection, and enjoy one of natures’ best shows.
But don’t worry if you miss this one, there will be another partial on June 10, 2021 (86%) and on April 8, 2024 at 98%.
