It’s almost time for the long-anticipated 2024 solar eclipse, a once-in-a-lifetime celestial event happening during the afternoon hours of Monday, April 8th. Much of Lennox & Addington falls within the path of totality, which runs through parts of Mexico, the United States and in Canada generally from Niagara Falls to Montreal. Loyalist Township and the Town of Greater Napanee is within the path, as is much of Stone Mills Township. The occurrence is expected to begin at 2:09pm and end at 4:33pm.

Totality (where the moon fully covers the sun) will last approximately three minutes at around 3:22pm. Here is a good summary of the occasion, courtesy CBC.

 

Please be safe while viewing the eclipse. Take a look at this Solar Eclipse Safety Poster from Emergency Management Ontario.

The eclipse is expected to draw significant crowds to southeastern Ontario. Some events are happening locally to commemorate the occurrence. See below for details:
