Bishop’s, Brock plan events to mark total solar eclipse in April

Bishop’s University and Brock University are planning events to mark the total solar eclipse this April. Bishop’s is providing free eclipse glasses and inviting the community to experience the eclipse on Coulter Field, where they can learn more about physics, astronomy, and eclipses at special kiosks. Brock will supply eclipse glasses to participants and plans to have on-site viewing apparatuses such as pinhole projectors and solar telescopes available. The university’s Faculty of Mathematics and Science is holding a community event called Eclipse on the Escarpment, which will include educational exhibits and a viewing of the solar eclipse, and Brock Associate Professor Amy Friend has shared photography tips for documenting the eclipse.
