Solar Eclipse Viewing Event Hosted at Cox Science Center

The Cox Science Center and its Marmot Observatory are hosting a solar eclipse viewing event on Monday, April 8 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. 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 experts from the Marmot Observatory will be present to answer any questions related to space during the event. 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. 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 at several Palm Beach County library branches if you are unable to attend the event at Cox Science Center.
