People in southern Florida got the best view in the U.S. of last night’s partial solar eclipse.

Rain clouds blocked the view for much of the country. It will be another seven years before the U.S. gets to see the phenomenon again.

An Associated Press article says:

“The partial solar eclipse was visible across a corridor extending from the South Pacific to the Americas. People in South Florida got the best U.S. view of nearly half of the sun’s diameter covered over at 6:20 p.m. EDT. But rain clouds sporadically obstructed the view.

On the roof of Miami’s Museum of Science and Planetarium observatory, several people gathered to gaze towards the eclipse through special protective glasses. It had been a public viewing, but few people showed up because of the rain.”

“The crispness and sharpness of the moon’s edge over the solar surface amazing,” said public television astromony series host Jack Horkheimer. “What’s nice about this one is the sun has more color because its close to the horizon.”

People were warned not to stare directly at the eclipse without some kind of eye protection.
