Vancouver’s HR MacMillan Space Centre is hosting a community celebration for the the biggest astronomical event of 2017, the solar eclipse.
What makes this eclipse even more special is that this is the first time in 99 years that a total solar eclipse crossed the entire continental USA and here in Vancouver, we will be able to observe a 86% totality!
