Total Solar Eclipse this Monday!

This Monday, April 8th, 2024, there will be a total solar eclipse crossing over the United States Mexico and Canada. A total solar eclipse is when the moon passes in between the Earth and the sun completely blocking the view of the sun from a small part of Earth. This means it will get completely dark for a few minutes during the day. According to the Washington post, the temperature will drop, street lights might flicker, and plants and birds will start to act unusually. The last one of these total solar eclipses was in 2017 and after this year there won’t be another until 2044. 

 

  Although Florida is not in the path for a total eclipse, we will still be able to see a partial eclipse. According to the Tallahassee Democrat, the total eclipse will begin in Texas at around 1:27 pm CT and end in Maine at around 3:35 pm ET. “The state of Florida should have a 45% to 75% chance of a ‘maximum partial eclipse’ according to Great American Eclipse online” We can expect to see some kind of crescent shape obstructing the sun. Fort Lauderdale can expect to see this at around 1:40 to 4:15. 

 

  It’s crucial to be aware of the safety precautions when viewing a solar eclipse. Looking at the sun without proper eye protection can cause permanent eye damage. To safely watch the eclipse use special eclipse glasses or handheld solar viewers. Both of these will allow for a safe viewing of the phenomenon. Telescopes and or binoculars can also be used to safely view the sun.

Hi! My name is Talia Badalamente, and I'm a Senior at West Boca. This is my second year with The Bullseye and I’m really looking forward to it. I have a younger sister who also attends West Boca. I play varsity soccer for the school and am in a few clubs too. After high school, I would like to attend FSU, UCF, or USF. I can’t wait to start writing for The Bullseye this year!
