The peak of the 2017 solar eclipse has come and gone for Miami.
While we were certainly not in the 70-mile-wide path of totality, where the sky goes dark as wildlife becomes confused, Miami witnessed about 78 percent of the sun being obscured by the moon on Monday afternoon just before 3 p.m. Eastern Time.
The next total eclipse won’t be observable in the United States until 2024 and not until August 2045 will Florida be in the next solar eclipse’s path of totality.
Here’s what Miami saw around the peak viewing time.

Whoooops, carry on.
In Miami, you really wouldn't notice the eclipse *without* the glasses. pic.twitter.com/SeZ2eCqpYj— Doug Hanks (@doug_hanks) August 21, 2017
