Just In Case – Darling Hill Observatory Will NOT Be Opening For The December 10 Eclipse


Posted by sasadmin, December 9th, 2011

Greetings fellow astrophiles,

As a few calls and emails have come in – the December 10 Lunar Eclipse will not be visible from the East Coast and will, in fact, only be somewhat visible to early-morning risers on the West Coast. The forecast calls for considerable cloud cover as well on the evening of December 9th, so we will also not host a still-can’t-see-the-eclipse nighttime lunar observing session.

For pictures and interesting descriptions and discussions about the even we won’t be able to see, check out the following: earthsky.org/space/how-do-i-watch-the-total-lunar-eclipse. And expect some fantastic pictures to be posted to astronomy website in the next 48 hours…
