Solar eclipse in Montreal: when and how to watch

News

McGill University astronomer Kelly Lepo has a trick for seeing the eclipse with the help of nature. Place yourself underneath a leafy tree, she says, and watch the ground. The holes in the leaves acts as pinholes, projecting mini solar eclipses on the ground for you to see without crafting one out of a box.

If that won't do, Lepo is one of the organizers of an eclipse-watching party on the Lower Field of the McGill Campus. The party, a family-friendly event, will have solar telescopes and free eclipse glasses as well as a live stream of the eclipse. Volunteers will be on-hand to explain how an eclipse works and will be holding activities.
