Partial View of South Florida: Frost Science Museum Events

On April 8, a partial solar eclipse will be visible in South Florida as the moon aligns between the sun and Earth. The eclipse will start in Mexico, pass over the United States and Canada, and exit into the Atlantic Ocean. With a 115-mile wide path, 15 states will witness this incredible event.

Douglas A. Roberts, an astrophysicist, is eagerly anticipating the eclipse that is scheduled to begin at 1:27 p.m. in Texas and end at 3:35 p.m. in Maine. This eclipse is anticipated to be special as the sun’s corona will be fully visible for all to see. The next coast-to-coast eclipse in the U.S won’t occur until 2045, making this event even more remarkable.

The solar eclipse is expected to last longer than the 2017 eclipse, lasting 4 minutes and 28 seconds. Downtown Miami is gearing up for a celebration with special edition eclipse glasses, telescopes, and a live feed from NASA showing the totality from various locations including Cutler Bay where The Alhambra Orchestra of Miami will provide content for “Out of This World” performance on April 7th . Cities like Dallas, Little Rock, Buffalo are also preparing for tourists to see the total eclipse while Montreal will host eclipse themed parties . In addition to these activities Frost Science Museum in Miami has planned “Solar Eclipse Weekend” on April 6th and 7th which includes museum tours highlighting celestial events as well as interactive workshops for visitors of all ages
