LOOK: Solar eclipse in Niagara

The solar eclipse reached its peak in Niagara at around 2:30 this afternoon.

Crowds gathered outside to watch the eclipse, which slowly started after 1:15pm and continues until 3:45pm.

Canadians aren't witnessing the total eclipse, but crowds in Victoria are being treated to a glimpse of the moon obscuring 90 per cent of the sun.

Below are some photos from around the region of the solar event. Send in your photos on any of our social media accounts, or email newsroom@610cktb.com !
