Experience the partial solar eclipse on campus at John Abbott College this Monday, August 21 from 1:20 to 3:50 p.m.

Join the student astronomy group Stars & Stuff who are planning activities around the eclipse, as well as streaming NASA coverage live for the duration.

Sky gazers are welcome to join students and staff on the Oval, the front lawn of the college. However, they should bring their own protective eyewear.

CBC.ca states: To protect your eyes, wear special eclipse glasses, which you can get at many local museums, (public libraries) and science centres, or order through websites like the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada at secure.rasc.ca. NASA says to make sure the glasses have certification information, with a designated ISO 12312-2 international standard. Don’t use them if they’re bent, damaged or more than three years old.

Parking is difficult during the day on campus so we strongly recommend that visitors take public transit. The college is located at 21275 Lakeshore Drive in Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue.
