Partial Eclipse of the Sun
August 21, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Name of Tour: Partial Eclipse of the Sun
When: Monday August 21st 2-5pm
Where: Information Kiosk, Sand Cove Road, Irving Nature Park
Description: On the afternoon of August 21st more than half the sun will disappear over New Brunswick. Don’t be alarmed, but be safe. Join local members and guests of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada NB Centre at the Irving Nature Park in observing the moon pass in front of the sun through filtered telescopes. This is the best partial eclipse for our area in the past 18 years. With luck we might see sunspots and prominences on the sun. Special eclipse viewers will also be available to watch the event safely with just your eyes. Do not observe the eclipse without proper eye protection! For more information, please contact the park at 653-7367.
