Solar Eclipse Viewing Event Hosted at Cox Science Center

On Monday, April 8 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., the Cox Science Center and its Marmot Observatory will host a solar eclipse viewing event. Although South Florida won’t be able to see 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. This telescope is the largest publicly available telescope in South Florida, making it a unique opportunity for guests to view the eclipse without the need for solar glasses.

The solar 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. Experts from the Marmot Observatory will be present to answer any questions related to space during this time. A view through the telescope is included with a general admission ticket, and solar viewing glasses are available on a first-come, first-served basis if needed.
