Experience total lunar eclipse at Triton’s Cernan Earth and Space Center – Sunday, Jan. 20

On Sunday evening, Jan. 20, the moon will pass through Earth’s shadow, and weather permitting, we will be able to witness a total lunar eclipse. You are invited to experience this rare event at the Cernan Earth and Space Center during a FREE public observing event from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. Outside, telescopes will be set up to look at the moon and other winter wonders. Inside, there will be planetarium programs, hot chocolate, activities and streaming video. A lunar eclipse is perfectly safe to view and no special equipment (or glasses) are needed.

The next total lunar eclipse visible from here occurs May 2022. Visit www.triton.edu/cernan for updated information.
