Viewing the solar eclipse in Miami: A perspective from Frost Science Museum

Miami’s Frost Science Museum is a renowned science gallery that includes a planetarium, which was the perfect spot for sky gazers to witness the Great North American Eclipse, a total solar eclipse that passed over North America. The museum hosted visitors on Monday to witness this rare and awe-inspiring event, even though South Florida only saw a partial eclipse. Visitors were able to catch a glimpse of the eclipse and learn more about the science behind the moon blocking Earth’s view of the sun through programs and the planetarium.

People at the Frost Science Museum were able to view the partial solar eclipse and participate in activities to enhance their experience. Some visitors, like Jayme Eglin and her sons, used pinhole cameras in the shadow to see the eclipse. Others, like Andrea Victoriano, Esperanza Salcedo, Joanna Fijalkowska, Emanuel Victoriano, Malena Contreras, and Claudia Herman, watched the eclipse from different spots around the museum’s plaza. The partial solar eclipse reached about 40% visibility in Miami on that day, providing a unique and memorable experience for all who attended.
