Full lunar eclipse

27July2018 28July2018 21:30


On July 27 there will be a full lunar eclipse. The earth passes between the sun and the moon, blocking the sunlight from reaching the moon, rendering the latter blood red. The moon will rise around 21:30, already fully eclipsed, and we will slowly see it become lighter and lighter. During the eclipse there will be lectures and workshops and tours through our star domes. If the weather is good, we will observe the eclipse with the naked eye and telescopes. If the weather is bad, we will project a livestream on a big screen.
