Partial Eclipse Seen in the Lakeland

Though you had to go way down to the States if you wanted the best viewing today, the Solar Eclipse still partially made its presence felt in the Lakeland today.

Peek viewing hours for the region were around 11:35, with the sun being about 60 percent covered as the moon passed by. Around a hundred people gathered in Sir Winston Churchill Park in Lac La Biche to watch the event.

A full ring of light around the sun from the eclipse called a sun dog could be seen in some parts of the region as well. Sun dogs are formed when light refracts and scatters off of ice crystals in the sky.
