A number of the HAA members got out to enjoy the partial eclipse from our location. We knew there wasn't going to be much of a show since we were only expected to get about 18% covered and the Sun would set before the eclipse completed. However that didn't discourage us from trying.
Some members ended up at Binbrook Conservation Area to view the event from that location.
Ann Tekatch got some nice shots and posted them in her own Facebook album.
Jim Wamsley also captured a nice sequence of images and has posted them on SkyDrive. If this link works, it should give you a slide show of his images.

And then I went down to Port Dalhousie (near St Catherines) to capture the event over Lake Ontario to try for a few extra seconds of visibility. It turned out to be a busy spot since the weather was so nice. So I ended up doing some sidewalk astronomy. I had several pairs of the solar glasses which we shared amongst the many people and I showed some of the images I had captured. A lot of fun.
