There’s A Total Solar Eclipse Coming Up In Canada, And Here’s How To Protect Your Eyes



On April 8, a total solar eclipse will cast nightfall on Central and Eastern Canada, from Ontario all the way to Newfoundland and Labrador. Since this could be a once-in-a-lifetime moment, you’ll want to witness this rare and spectacular phenomenon.
