Total Lunar Eclipse Observation

Come see the lunar eclipse at Goodsell Observatory on Tuesday morning, April 15th, from 1:00 to 3:30 AM!

Tuesday, April 15th, 2014
1:00 – 3:30 am / Goodsell Observatory

Come view a total lunar eclipse at Goodsell Observatory or watch it at home! The observatory will be open (if it's clear) Tuesday morning, April 15th, from 1-3:30 AM. Totality, when the moon usually turns a beautiful red, is from 2:06 to 3:25. The Earth's shadow takes its first real bite out of the Moon at 12:58. We will have the 16" telescope open in the dome and several other telescopes and binoculars available on the pad outside. If you don't want to come all the way here in the middle of the night, binoculars at home will do quite well!
