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
