Thread: Partial Solar Eclipse in Nanaimo

  1. #1

    Default Partial Solar Eclipse in Nanaimo

    On Sunday May 20, there will be a partial solar eclipse viewable from Nanaimo as the moon moves between us and the sun.

    Volunteers from the Nanaimo Astronomy Society will be giving the public a chance to view the partial eclipse safely from Maffeo Sutton Park.

    We will have some solar telescopes set up along with a large number of eclipse glasses that people can use at the event to view the eclipse.

    The eclipse should be visible just before 2 PM and will remain visible until after 7 PM.

    WARNING: It is VERY IMPORTANT that you do not look at the eclipse with binoculars or standard telescopes.
    If you do, you run the risk of severe damage to your eyes.
