Eclipse, named after Eclipse Point on the northeast coast of British Columbia (52°58’38″N 129°18’00″W), is an adult female killer whale who was born in late 1997. Eclipse is the third calf of Simoom (A34) and has two brothers, Echo (A55) and Hope (A80); and two sisters, Misty (A62) and Rainy (A96). Eclipse became a mother herself in 2009 with the birth of her first calf, Sunday (A92). Unfortunately, Sunday passed away in 2-11. Luckily, eclipse had another chance at motherhood and gave birth to Tuzo (A102) in 2012 and Barlow (A112) in 2016 – both are still alive and well!
