ECLIPSE DAY AT NEW EYES OLD SKIES

What a day last Monday was…. We couldn’t believe the over-whelming response in our hosting of the days’ main event!

In our part of the country, the weather was perfect.. We had set up on the piazza just in front of the store,  two main scopes and a direct feed from NASA in the States.

Close to 100 people from the community and the surrounding GTA came to join us. Everyone was  definitely wowed by the Partial Eclipse.

This was one of those events that you didn’t want to miss. We have posted some great shots taken by our dedicated volunteers and some of our awesome clients.

A big “Thank You” goes out to  J.K. our main event coordinator ,Bruce, L.B. and all those people who came to support the day with New Eyes Old Skies  Richmond Hill

Keep April 6th 2024 on your calendar of events because that is when the Total Eclipse of the sun

comes our way

ECLIPSE GLASSES AND OTHER SOLAR FILTERS

Due to the unbelievable demand for Solar viewing glasses,

filters and other items, we are  sorry to say that we are all sold out. There has been an incredible demand for all of these items,over the past weeks.

We are over-whelmed with the response and the calls from all over Canada and the United States, but our suppliers have run out of everything.

New Eyes Old Skies will be hosting SOLAR OBSERVING

on our patio piazza this Monday, August 21. You are invited to watch the partial eclipse safely on a live video as well as live streaming from NASA. Do bring your  own solar eclipse glasses and your solar filters for cameras and set up on our patio if you would like. Come early to the store for the best spots available.

  • Man must rise above the Earth—to the top of the atmosphere and beyond—for only thus will he fully understand the world in which he lives.

    ~ Socrates

  • We find them smaller and fainter, in constantly increasing numbers, and we know that we are reaching into space, farther and farther, until, with the faintest nebulae that can be detected with the greatest telescopes, we arrive at the frontier of the known universe.
    ~ Edwin Powell Hubblel
  • If there is anything that can bind the heavenly mind of man to this dreary exile of our earthly home and can reconcile us with our fate so that one can enjoy living—then it is verily the enjoyment of the mathematical sciences and astronomy.

    ~ Johannes Kepler
