SOLAR ECLIPSE ~ April 8, 2024

On Monday, April 8, 2024, there will be a solar eclipse when the Moon moves between the Sun and the Earth. In Toronto, it is expected to be a near-total solar eclipse between 2:04 p.m. and 4:31 p.m., with the peak happening at 3:19 p.m. That's when most of the Sun's light will be covered by the Moon. Please note that it is dangerous to look directly at the sun at any time – and especially during an eclipse. This can harm your eyes and even cause permanent damage and loss of sight. If you want to look at the eclipse, only use safe solar eclipse viewers or filters that meet international standard ISO 12312-2. They will make the sun look comfortably bright like the full moon.
