One of the most spectacular astronomical events in years is coming to Miami August 21: a solar eclipse. Although the Magic City falls just outside of the 100-mile path of totality, where a total solar eclipse is viewable, Miamians will still be able to witness a partial eclipse, with a pretty impressive 80 percent of the sun shadowed by the moon. There are even times when a partial eclipse looks almost identical to a total eclipse, so Monday’s event is poised to be a grand spectacle. The next solar eclipse won’t take place over Miami until August 12, 2045, so be sure to make the most of this one. Just keep in mind not to look directly at the sun without proper glasses or filters because it could severely damage your eyes.
