The moon will be silhouetting itself in front of the Sun in a partial solar eclipse – an event that won’t be seen again in Calgary until 2023! Festivities start at 10 a.m. in the Brainasium. We’ll give you the low-down on the science and beauty of eclipses and provide some tips on the best ways to view it live. You can find out more about the day's activities here.
