Besser Museum to Hold Lunar Eclipse Party Wednesday

When you wake up this Wednesday you may see something different with the moon. That’s because a total lunar eclipse will be in full affect, turning the moon to a “blood red” color.

The Besser Museum is hosting a viewing party called the ‘Blue Super Moon Lunar Eclipse’ to track the earth’s shadow across the second full moon of January.

Digital Dome Program Coordinator, Thaddeus LaCoursiere you don’t need anything special to view this moment in history. The last total eclipse was in 1866, and the next chance to catch one will be in 2028. A blue moon, super moon, and total eclipse won’t come together again until 2037.

The viewing event will take place once again this Wednesday, January 31st at Besser Museum from 6 am until 8 am.
