The moon interrupted dawn at the Collingwood Terminals on June 10th, treating fishermen and amateur astronomy enthusiasts to a solar eclipse. The eclipse was visible from about half of Canada, with a strip of land from Lake Superior to Russia falling under the shadow of an annular or “ring of fire” eclipse. At the eclipse’s maximum in Collingwood, the moon covered about 80 per cent of the Sun.
