Partial Solar Eclipse Viewing Party at Frost Science

On April 8, 2024, the United States will experience a total solar eclipse that will cast its shadow across a wide swath of the country. While Miami will not be directly in the path of totality, it will still witness a partial solar eclipse. The partial solar eclipse in Miami is set to begin at 1:47pm and reach its peak at 3:01pm with 45% of the sun’s disk obscured. It will end at 4:13pm.

In celebration of this rare event, Frost Science is inviting guests to join in a partial solar eclipse viewing party starting at noon on April 8. The waterfront museum will offer special programming in the planetarium and throughout its galleries, exploring the science and history of eclipses. Visitors can view the partial solar eclipse from one of six museum levels but are reminded to use solar viewers to protect their eyes, which are provided for free with ticket purchase.

Attendees can participate in activities such as building a lunar base camp, creating a pinhole camera, storytime, an interactive eclipse show and more leading up to the main event. For non-members, tickets start at $37.95 for ages 12 and older and $26.95 for children ages four to eleven, granting full access to the museum and eclipse programming. Rooftop access during the event will be limited to active Frost Science members on a first-come, first-served basis.

This total solar eclipse is considered one of the most anticipated celestial events of the year and visitors from all over the United States are expected to gather in Miami to witness this rare occurrence. With special programming and activities offered by Frost Science, it’s sure to be an unforgettable experience for all who attend!
