We would like to thank all those that came out to help with and view the Eclipse on Monday 21 August, 2017. It was a very successful event and could not have happened with out the help and enthusiasm of everyone involved. Stay tuned for the Total Solar Eclipse of 2024 details to come.
The partial eclipse begins on the right side of the Sun’s disk just after lunch, at 13:07. Soon after this you will notice the black bite out of the Sun. Maximum eclipse occurs at 14:30, when 75% of the Sun will be blocked by the Moon’s disk. The Sun will be back to normal by 16:10 as the Moon moves off the left side of the Sun’s disk.
The RASC London Centre will support the event at the campus of Western University if you would like to have a fun and safe chance to view the partial solar eclipse. Continue reading “Partial Solar Eclipse in London Ontario Monday August 21”
