Thousands of people across southern B.C. gathered outside on Monday to watch one of the best showings of the solar eclipse in the country.
The eclipse started at approximately 9:10 a.m. PT and peaked at 10:37 a.m. PT when about 86 per cent of the sun was obscured by the moon's shadow.
By 11:20 a.m., the moon had passed through and it was all over on the West Coast.
