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