Partial Solar Eclipse Visible in Mississauga Sunday Morning

Early risers Sunday November 3 will need a clear sky and a low eastern horizon to witness a brief partial solar eclipse.  The Moon will take a very small bite out of the Sun. The partial eclipse will be in progress at sunrise (6:58 AM EST) and will only last 13 minutes, ending at 7:11 am EST. 

**Note - observers from the RASC will be at Jack Darling Park on the waterfront at 6:50 am. Bring coffee!

The partial eclipse is visible because a Total Eclipse of the Sun will be visible in Africa later in the day. The eclipse path starts over the mid-Atlantic and crosses over the entire African continent.
