First Solar Eclipse in 38 Years
While you won't get to see a full eclipse in Brockville there will still be a reason to the skies this afternoon.
Unlike a portion of the U-S, Canada won't see a total solar eclipse, where the moon completely covers the sun, blacking out the sky and momentarily turning day into night.
Canadians will see a partial eclipse, with Victoria, B-C getting the country's best view at 90 per cent totality.
In Brockville, the partial eclipse begins at 1:17pm, with its peak at 2:36pm, the eclipse will end at 3:50pm
Local astronomer Paul Bullock will run an exact simulation of a full eclipse in the planetarium on the Aquatarium’s fourth floor from 1:20 p.m. to 3:45 p.m.
People viewing the celestial event are reminded to wear eclipse glasses to prevent serious eye damage.
Take that Piers Morgan! Honestly, who could have answered this crazy question?!
That is just very impressive.
In 2004, the European Space Agency sent a probe to meet the comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko. It caught up to it in 2014 and even landed a module to analyze its composition. Here are its final images.
