Breathtaking: Partial Solar Eclipse Viewing Party in Miami Celebrates Rare Astronomical Event

On April 8, 2024, the United States will experience a rare celestial event: a total solar eclipse. The path of totality will stretch from Texas in the south to Maine in the northeast, making it one of the most highly anticipated astronomical events of the year.

While Miami will not be directly in the path of totality this time, the city will still have a unique experience: a partial solar eclipse. The eclipse will begin at 1:47pm and peak at 3:01pm when only 45% of the sun will be obscured. The event will end at 4:13pm.

To celebrate this special occasion, Frost Science is hosting a partial solar eclipse viewing party starting at noon on April 8. The museum, located on the waterfront, will offer special programming in its planetarium and throughout its galleries focusing on the science and history of eclipses.

During this event, guests can observe the partial solar eclipse from one of six levels of the museum while wearing solar viewers to protect their eyes. Bring your own pair or use those provided for free with your ticket purchase. Frost Science members who want rooftop access should arrive early on a first-come, first-served basis.

The viewing party features fun activities like building a lunar base camp, creating a pinhole camera, storytime, interactive eclipse shows and more! Ticket prices for non-members start at $37.95 for ages 12 and older and $26.95 for kids ages four to eleven, providing full access to the museum and eclipse programming.

This is an excellent opportunity for people in Miami to witness a rare astronomical phenomenon and learn more about it!
