A total solar eclipse will take place in Aril and Orlando residents and visitors will be treated to a partial glimpse of the phenomenon on April 8, beginning at 1:46 p.m.

Orlandoans will see a 65% partial eclipse of the sun, with the maximum amount being covered at 3:03 p.m. As always, we are here to tell you that it is not safe to look directly at the sun during an eclipse without special eye protection. If we catch you doing it, you will be mocked and we will throw a shoe at you.

If you’d like to score a pair of solar eclipse goggles, our friends at Orlando Science Center and the Orange County Regional History Center regularly host eclipse-inspired event programming where they provide them to attendees. Check their socials for more information closer to the day of the eclipse.

Total solar eclipses happen roughly every 18 months.
