We owe the natural beauty and wonder of a solar eclipse more to the laws of physics than magic, but it’s still magical to be able to witness such an extraordinary cosmic event from a fantasy-inspired area inside a favorite theme park.

That’s what guests did today in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Hollywood, where attendees were lucky enough to spot the eclipse directly above Hogwarts Castle using special light-blocking glasses. For a couple hours this morning, visitors to the streets of Hogsmeade Village got a good view of this rare astronomical occurrence.
