Some Vancouver Island residents were lucky enough to view this year’s partial solar eclipse on Saturday, despite clouds covering most of the sky.
The annular solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes between the earth and sun, but it’s only easily viewable from select areas each year.
This year, the celestial event could be seen above western B.C. roughly between 8 a.m. and 11 a.m.
Unlike a complete solar eclipse, this partial eclipse leaves a sliver of sun visible, creating a crescent shape.
