On Thursday, there will be a partial solar eclipse in Canada. Due to this lunar Eclipse, the sun will look like a fingernail, as it sets in the west for most of the country and Canada.
According to NASA’s statement:
“The show will reach its height at 5:45 p.m. ET, meaning the Eastern half of the country should get a view before the backdrop of golden twilight hues. People living in the Central Time zone will have the best view. New England and Hawaii will unfortunately miss out on this one.”
Moreover it has also been told that the eclipse will stay for around more than two hours.
Furthermore NASA warns the public to protect their eyes. Explaining the matter, NASA told that: “Overlapping leaves create a myriad of natural little pinhole cameras, each one casting an image of the crescent-sun onto the ground beneath the canopy. Don’t stare directly. Even at maximum eclipse, a sliver of sun peeking out from behind the Moon can still cause pain and eye damage. Direct viewing should only be attempted with the aid of a safe solar filter. There are some old tricks to viewing indirectly, like punching a hole in cardboard and projecting the light seeping through it onto a surface away from the sun. Or let a tree do the work for you.”
Additionally NASA also reported that the next solar eclipse will occur after almost three years and that eclipse will be more dramatic and erratic total eclipse.
