Solar Eclipse 2017: When to see it in South Florida

In the United States, the Aug. 21 total solar eclipse will be visible in areas of Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia and South Carolina.

The shadow of the eclipse will travel from west to east. It will be the first total solar eclipse in the U.S. main land since 1979.

A partial solar eclipse will be visible in Florida. The moon won't completely hide the solar surface, so there will be some direct rays of sunlight. 

The chart below is a list of the times when the partial and maximum eclipse will be visible in areas of South Florida.
