Solar Eclipse Viewing Event Hosted at Cox Science Center

On Monday, April 8, the Cox Science Center and its Marmot Observatory will be hosting a solar eclipse viewing event from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Although South Florida won’t have the chance to witness the totality of the eclipse, guests can still catch a glimpse of the partial eclipse through the observatory’s 10-foot refracting telescope with solar filters. The telescope is the largest publicly available telescope in South Florida and offers a unique opportunity for guests to view the eclipse without needing solar glasses.

Experts from the Marmot Observatory will be present at the event to answer any questions related to space. The eclipse is set to begin at 1:48 p.m., reach its maximum at 3:30 p.m., and end at 4:15 p.m. A view through the telescope is included with a general admission ticket, and solar viewing glasses will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.

For more information about the event, visit coxsciencecenter.org/event/solar-eclipse-viewing. If you are unable to attend the event at the Cox Science Center, several Palm Beach County library branches will also be giving away solar glasses for viewing the eclipse.

This solar eclipse event promises to be an exciting and educational experience for all who attend!
