Meet Astronomy Naturalist at Frohring Meadows in the early hours of November 30 to view this lunar event.
Ohio experiences a (very!) partial lunar eclipse in the early-morning hours of Monday, November 30. Will you meet Astronomy Naturalist “Astro-Nat” Chris Mentrek from 4 to 5 a.m. out at Frohring Meadows for this very early morning view?
Beginning around 2:30 a.m., the moon will just barely graze the edge of the Earth’s shadow, a penumbral eclipse that ends just as the moon begins to set around 7 a.m. During the peak time when this program takes place, the top of the moon will appear shaded from Geauga County.
“Though it won’t be the eclipse of the century, it’s still worth waking up early to watch,” said Astro-Nat Chris, who will also offer participants a preview of upcoming eclipses and how to view them. “Consider this a practice run for November 2021, when we’ll get to see a much more dramatic, near-total lunar eclipse!”
Registration is required for this Partial Lunar Eclipse program at www.geaugaparkdistrict.org or 440-286-9516. Face coverings will be required whenever social distancing cannot be maintained. Please call ahead with questions.
