Solar Eclipse today starting around 1pm.
Today between 1pm and 4pm there will be a partial Solar Eclipse.
Canada won't see a total solar eclipse, where the moon will completely cover the sun, blacking out the sky and turning day into night. A total eclipse will only be seen along the so-called path of totality, which is a narrow band from Oregon to South Carolina. Toronto will enjoy 70% coverage.
Anyone who can't make it out to an event can fashion their own homemade eclipse viewer according to the Canadian Space Agency. But caution must be a priority as partial or complete blindess are risks when looking at the sun without adequate protection.
The next total solar eclipse occurring near Toronto will be in 2024, visible in the Niagara region.
