Join us for a day of special programming in the Frost Planetarium and across the museum to learn about the science and history of eclipses.

April’s eclipse is a total solar eclipse, which occurs when the Moon is the right distance away from the Earth to completely obscure our view of the Sun. It will be a beautiful sight! Here in Miami the eclipse will be visible as a partial solar eclipse, with only part of the Sun’s disk obscured during the peak. The eclipse will begin at 1:47 p.m. and reach its maximum coverage of 45% of the Sun at 3:01 p.m. The eclipse will end at 4:13 p.m.

During this time, you can marvel at the partial solar eclipse using solar viewers or your own pair of solar eclipse glasses, available for purchase online in advance or in the Science Store. Get your glasses here!

Museum rooftop access (Level 6) will be limited to active Frost Science members only, and available on a first-come, first-served basis, weather permitting.

*Please carefully read user instructions on eclipse glasses before use. Use of eclipse glasses is at your own risk.

Your safety is our top priority. Please ensure you use proper solar eclipse glasses with the ISO 12312-2 safety standard to view the Sun. At Frost Science, we offer solar eclipse glasses from our Science Store, which have been approved by the American Astronomical Society for safe viewing*. If you have glasses from a previous eclipse, they can still be used if they are undamaged. Remember, never look directly at the Sun without proper protection.
