April 8th, 2024 Solar Eclipse

On Monday, April 8, 2024, Ontario is set to witness a solar eclipse. This upcoming event will mark the first total solar eclipse visible from certain parts of southern Ontario since 1925. During a total solar eclipse, the moon completely obscures the sun.

A small section of Ontario, including Centre Hastings, will fall within the path of totality. The path of totality refers to a narrow stretch, approximately 100-115 km wide, where the sun appears completely covered by the moon for a brief period.

In Centre Hastings, the eclipse will commence around 2 pm and conclude around 4:30 pm. The peak moment of total darkness will occur at 3:24 pm, lasting for a duration of 2 minutes.

We kindly remind residents to refrain from directly looking at the eclipse, as it can potentially harm your eyes.
