Mississauga residents can see an eclipse early Thursday
Mississauga residents who are early risers -- or exceptionally night-owlish -- will have a chance to view an eclipse on Thursday morning (June 10).
At around 5:40 a.m., an annular solar eclipse will be visible in the eastern sky for people in the Toronto region. An annular solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes in front of the sun to create a ring of light in the sky. Within Canada, they are best viewed -- with safety glasses -- in Ontario, Quebec and Nunavut.
The University of Toronto’s Dunlap Institute for Astronomy & Astrophysics recommends wearing safety glasses for direct observation of an eclipse.
