Cover picture for the articleST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — A very fun event will take place in the morning sky Thursday — a solar eclipse. Unfortunately, this won’t be seen in Florida. However, it’s still an interesting celestial event. A solar eclipse happens when the moon gets perfectly in between the Earth and sun and blocks out all or part of the sun while casting its shadow on Earth.
