Don't Forget To Set An Alarm If You Want To Witness A Partial Solar Eclipse In Montreal

If you want to catch the partial solar eclipse that's happening on the morning of June 10 (that's tomorrow by the way!) then consider this your reminder to go to bed early tonight and set your alarm.

"Right from daybreak, it will seem as though part of the sun has disappeared from the sky, eclipsed by the moon," Espace pour la vie explained in a statement.

According to Espace pour la vie, the eclipse is expected to be visible in Montreal between 5:07 a.m. and 6:38:58 a.m., reaching a "maximum" at 5:39:10.

Before looking up at the sun, make sure you review the rules for safe observation and never look directly at the eclipse without some sort of filter. 

Solar filters and observation glasses are being distributed free of charge in Montreal libraries (one filter per family) or you can build your own observation box.
