On Monday, Dec. 20, at 11:30 p.m., the William D. McDowell Observatory is hosting a special event — a total lunar eclipse viewing session.
The first total lunar eclipse in nearly three years will take place on Dec. 20/21. Join MEC staff and receive a brief introduction to eclipses, learn about the lore/legends of astronomy and view objects in the nights sky while we gather to witness this astronomical event. Admission is free, no registration required.
Participants will gather at the NJMC Center for Environmental and Scientific Education, adjacent to the William D. McDowell Observatory.
