On our first trip to Nova Scotia in 2017, we witnessed the solar eclipse while visiting Oak Island. One of the crew members had a piece of welder’s glass that we passed around the group, about a half dozen, so we could look. It was a great experience.

This morning there was a rare sunrise eclipse that was partially visible over the Northeastern seaboard.
