Annular Solar Eclipse Is Today

Annular Solar Eclipse Is Today

If you were hoping to catch the solar eclipse today, do it safely at Sheridan College.

The Museum of Discovery will provide viewing glasses and a solar telescope for interested parties to safely stare at the sun while the new moon passes directly through its center.

The moon will not completely obstruct the sun, as there will still be a rim of light around the moon's shadow, which is sometimes called a “ring of fire.” The next annular solar eclipse will not occur until 2017.

This event is weather permitting. Interested parties can meet outdoors on the Sheridan College Campus, just north of the Mohn's Center at 6 p.m.
