There is a good reason to be outside on Monday.
A total solar eclipse will see the moon block the sun completely or partially (depending on location).
According to the Government of Canada "It has been several decades since Canadians have seen an eclipse this significant."
Fort Saskatchewan and the capital region will see the eclipse start at 10:24 a.m. before ending around 12:47 p.m. Maximum coverage will be roughly 75 per cent at 11:34 a.m.
Victoria, B.C., will be one of the best places in the country to watch the eclipse. As much as 91 per cent of the sun will go dark.
It is highly recommended to have a pair of special solar glasses, or welding goggles to view the event. Staring directly at the event without protection could cause retinal damage.
The event will be streamed live on NASA’s website, beginning at 12 p.m. ET. Various views from aircrafts, satellites, and telescopes will be available.
