Darkness at Dusk

The last solar eclipse observable from Pensacola in this decade, a rare hybrid eclipse, starts at 4:25 PM CDT Friday afternoon. At maximum coverage, the moon will eclipse 20% of the Sun. It will all be over by 6:06 PM, or about an hour before sunset.

Totality will be observable for just a few seconds, mainly by Venezuelan sloths and fish in the mid-Pacific Ocean who happen to look up.
