Everything your team needs to know for the eclipse

On Monday, April 8th, 2024 at 3:26 PM, the Moon will block out the Sun over most of Montréal. For several minutes, day will turn into night and be one of the most memorable moments for your team's life.

But there will be many logistical issues to consider. This presentation will help you get everything ready.

Moon Eclipsing the Sun

This in-person presentation from Plateau Astro founder, Trevor Kjorlien, will help your company how to plan for this day. You'll learn:

  • which date and time is the eclipse
  • if your office is in the path to see the full eclipse
  • what equipment you'll need to safely view it
  • if co-workers should work remotely that day
  • how your co-workers should plan with their family
  • why this is a major significant event
  • your specific questions, answered!

Why is Montréal a logistical challenge for the eclipse?

The path of the solar eclipse runs through the middle of Montréal. In the image below, the red part will not get the full experience, but the blue part will.

This will be a logistical nightmare for many people. Traffic will be crazy. Don't let your team get caught up in it.

As an employer, you have the chance to make this a special day for your employees. Make sure you're ready.

To watch the eclipse, your team will need eclipse glasses. Plateau Astro can offer a discounted, bulk sale of eclipse glasses to your team which can be handed out at the end of the presentation.

Plateau Astro can also offer a discount for employees to buy glasses for their friends and family.
