Total Lunar Eclipse Viewing Party
January 20 • 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm
Sure, it’s not 2017’s solar eclipse, but total lunar eclipses can be just as cool since it offers a chance to see the moon’s craters and mountains. The upcoming total lunar eclipse will line up perfectly for everyone in the western hemisphere, and another won’t happen for another nearly 40 years. Eugene Science Center is hosting a Total Lunar Eclipse Viewing Party. Thanks to the Eugene Astronomical Society, there will be several telescopes available for use to peek at our friend in space, the moon. Because of the science center’s proximity to Autzen Stadium (where it never rains), hopefully there will be clear skies during the eclipse. However, the group will have status updates on the weather. If you can’t make it to the science center, just make sure you have Pink Floyd’s “Eclipse” primed and ready to go during the eclipse, which will occur from 8:41 to 9:43 pm.
Eugene Science Center’s Total Lunar Eclipse Viewing Party, cohosted by Eugene Astronomical Society, runs 7:30 to 10:30 pm Sunday, Jan. 20, at 2300 Leo Harris Parkway. FREE. — Henry Houston
