A big thank you to the well over 400 people who came out to DeKorte Park last night to (try to) view the Total Lunar Eclipse. Unfortunately the clouds did not cooperate and there was little to see, but everyone appeared to enjoy themselves and the kids got a thrill of seeing the large telescope in the William D. McDowell Observatory. Plus, you’ve got plenty of chances to visit the Observatory on clearer nights. It’s open to the public every Wednesday, weather permitting and excluding holidays. This Wednesday’s viewing hours are 8 to 10 pm. For a full list of hours and what can be seen in the coming months, download the schedule here.
