April 4 Meeting – The Do’s and Don’ts of Solar Eclipses: Lessons learned from almost 60 years of observing and chasing eclipses.

Join us this Thursday, April 4 (members of the public welcome!!) to hear club veteran Roger Hill discuss what to do (and what NOT to do) when observing the coming solar eclipse.

Roger Hill saw his first partial solar eclipse in 1966, igniting a love of eclipses, both Lunar and Solar, that continues to this day.  A past President of the Hamilton Centre, he gave his first talk at the Centre’s Members Night in December 1970 on the results of observations made of the March 7th, 1970 solar eclipse as seen from Burlington.

He moved to Cardinal, Ontario in July 2020, and one of the benefits of his current home is that it is in the path of Totality for the April 8th, 2024 eclipse.  

He hopes this talk will help others experience, observe, and record these sublime events.

Club meetings are held at the Royal Canadian Legion – Branch 551 79 Hamilton Street North Waterdown, ON. Doors for the public portion of the meeting will open at 7:00pm where we will be making solar eclipse glasses available to attendees.
