Celebrating the Partial Solar Eclipse: Frost Science Hosts a Unique Viewing Party in Miami

Join us at Frost Science for a partial solar eclipse viewing celebration

On April 8, 2024, the United States will experience a total solar eclipse. This celestial event, which will stretch from Texas in the south to Maine in the northeast, is one of the most highly anticipated events of the year. Although Miami will not be directly in the path of totality, it will still witness a partial solar eclipse.

The eclipse will begin at 1:47pm and peak at 3:01pm when 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.

Guests can observe the partial solar eclipse from one of six levels of the museum while protecting their eyes with solar viewers. Bring your own pair or use the goggles provided for free with your ticket purchase. During this event, rooftop access at Frost Science will be limited to active members on a first-come, first-served basis only.

The viewing party features activities such as 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 granting full access to the museum and eclipse programming. Don’t miss this opportunity to witness a partial solar eclipse and learn more about this unique astronomical phenomenon!
