TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE! – What to know about viewing this natural phenomenon in the wee hours of Nov. 8


As long as the skies are clear(ish), you can plan to witness a natural phenomenon overnight on Tuesday, November 8, with a total lunar eclipse – but you’ll have to set your alarm pretty early for it!

 

Should you desire better equipment than your own two eyes, or a little guidance as you watch, you might also plan to attend Geauga Park District’s viewing event at Observatory Park from 4 to 7 a.m. Drop in any time, but the most dramatic part of the eclipse, as the moon appears to go dark while passing into Earth’s shadow, will take place between 4 and 5:15 a.m.

 

No registration is required to watch from the park, where multiple telescopes will be pointed at the moon. Cell phone cameras will also come in handy at our “snapshot station” telescope, where visitors will be able to take their own up-close photos of the moon for easy sharing.
