Okay, probably not, but here's what's actually going to happen:
NASA says that the only safe way to look directly at the eclipse is with special eclipse glasses. If you look at the sun with your naked eye, you could burn your retina, which can permanently damage your vision.
What's even scarier, is that the retina doesn't have any pain receptors, which means you may not be aware of the damage until it's too late. Some people only notice the next morning after they wake up. So be extra careful this afternoon, because there's nothing more terrifying than the thought that you could go to sleep tonight feeling fine, and wake up blind tomorrow.
If you're lucky, the blindness will only be temporary, but there may still be some permanent damage. Although it is unlikely that you will go completely blind from looking at the eclipse, your vision can be impaired to the point where you are legally blind.
And if you want to know the best place to watch the Eclipse, look no further than Montreal's Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium. you're invited to join astronomers to observe the eclipse and you'll even be provided with free eclipse observation goggles.
Spring is by far the worst season when it comes to allergies. Tree pollen comes in as early as March and peaks in April, then the grass pollen invades the air, followed by mould spore and ragweed.
Unfortunately since we were "blessed" with an early and warm spring, this allergy season might be worse than ever. Plus pollen counts usually go up after heavy rainfalls, so considering the weather we've seen in the last few weeks, we're in for one bad season.
As if that wasn't bad enough, according to The Weather Network, reactions to things like ragweed and pollen are getting worse, they're affecting more people, and the allergy season seems to be lasting longer too.
Here are the top 10 allergens you should be watching out for.
On August 21st, at around 10:15 am, Canadians will be able to observe an almost total solar eclipse. The moon will pass directly in front of the sun which will cast a shadow onto the Earth.
From our perspective in Montreal, the sun will be partially covered. Only a small part of the sun will peak above the moon. However, in certain parts of America, the eclipse will cause a total blackout.
