Total solar eclipse: Don't close schools on April 8, a Quebec astronomer pleads

Total solar eclipse: Don't close schools on April 8, a Quebec astronomer pleads

“Schools that are about to collapse, please do not close their doors,” Philippe Musset said. Stay open longer and let your teens enjoy the total solar eclipse. “This is exceptional.”

An excited Mr. Musset says he traveled to Tennessee in 2017 to see the first total solar eclipse, and plans to travel to Spain in 2026 to see the next one.

It will also be a rare opportunity for Quebecers to observe such a phenomenon, as the next total solar eclipse in the province will not occur until 2106.

To raise questions about the safety of children, some school service centers chose to close their doors during this day, including the Capital School Service Center, in Quebec.

Astrophysicist Robert Lamontaigne explained that during a total solar eclipse, it is possible to look at the sun without adequate protection for a few moments.

He warned: “As long as the eclipse is not complete, the sun should not be looked at without adequate protection.”

CSS will also offer educational activities during the eclipse and provide necessary protective equipment for students.
