Total Solar Eclipse – Spencer Smith Park

April 8 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm


On April 8, between 2 p.m. and 4:30 p.m., residents are invited to Spencer Smith Park to witness the total solar eclipse.

The total solar eclipse, when the moon completely covers the sun, will be visible throughout Burlington, offering residents a unique opportunity to observe this natural wonder. The eclipse will begin at 2:04 p.m. and last until 4:31 p.m. The moon will fully cover the sun around 3:18 p.m., resulting in approximately two minutes of darkness.

It is not safe to look at the sun without eclipse glasses. The City has partnered with the Department of Physics and Astronomy at McMaster University to distribute eclipse glasses for free on the day of the event (while supplies last).

Bring blankets, lawn chairs, water and snacks. We’re excited to see you!
