Details

Come and join SJAA to view a total lunar eclipse!

The entire eclipse process will last for almost five hours, but we'll start at 7:15, just in time to view the beginning of the partial eclipse at 7:33. We'll stay through the total eclipse which ends at 9:43.

See this site for more details on the timings of the phases of the eclipse:

And here NASA offers some background on lunar eclipses:

We'll have a few telescopes set up and may also visit some other objects in the night sky.

Please come warmly dressed, perhaps wearing a bit more than you think you need. Also consider bringing a camping chair and binoculars if you have them.

Many of SJAA’s events, like this one, are public and free to attend, but if you’re enjoying what SJAA has to offer, consider becoming a paid member for only $20 per year: https://www.sjaa.net/membership/benefits-of-membership-2/
