Keep your eyes to the sky on the morning of August 21st! We are set to witness a once in a lifetime solar eclipse! For a brief period of approximately 2 minutes, the moon will pass directly in front of the sun casting a huge shadow over the earth. Unfortunately, here in Eastern Canada, we are too far north to witness much of the eclipse however, Western Canada expect to see about 85% of it. More southern regions in the United States will get a complete view of the phenomena.

It is very important to protect your eyes and not to look directly at the eclipse! Our phototherapy goggles block out harmful UV rays however, they will not protect you from the sun if you look directly at it!
