Photos: Albertan captures total eclipse in New Brunswick

Here's what the total eclipse looked like in New Brunswick.

Tim Giese of the Cochrane Environmental Action Committee travelled to little Rogersville, near Miramichi, NB, to experience the total eclipise on April 8.

The weather was gorgeous with barely a cloud in the sky.  

“It was quite the experience with the light dimming slowly until about 95 per cent coverage and then as the eclipse moved to totality watching a ‘wall’ of darkened sky zoom in from the west," he said. "While the sky above us was dark all around us on the horizon a sky like a sunset or sunrise. Venus and Jupiter were clearly visible.”

Meanwhile in Southern, Alberta, people were treated to a partial solar eclipse when the moon passed in front of the sun for a few hours.

In southern Alberta, including Rocky View County and Cochrane, the partial eclipse started at 11:47 a.m., reached its maximum at 12:42 p.m. and finished at 1:39 p.m.
