Partial Solar Eclipse observed at sunrise from Mississauga

Amateur astronomers in Mississauga and all along eastern North America were treated to a partial solar eclipse at sunrise on Sunday November 3, 2013.  The Sun rose partially eclipsed for observers at Jack Darling Park - within 13 minutes, the eclipse was over. The eclipse was total along a narrow line which crossed the Atlantic Ocean and Africa. The next total eclipse visible from North America crosses the continental USA on August 21, 2017 A total eclipse of the Sun will pass just south of Mississauga on April 8, 2024.
