Hello Horizons Observatory Supporters,
Please be aware that the Horizons Observatory WILL be open to the public to view Sunday night’s (January 20th) Supermoon Total Lunar Eclipse. The dome will open from 11:15pm-12:45am for moon gazing with the observatory's 14' Celestron telescope as-well-as binocular viewing.
Total eclipse begins: 11:41pm
Greatest eclipse: 12:13am
Total eclipse ends: 12:43am
We know this is really late at night, but school is not in session the next day (due to Martin Luther King Jr. Day) so students (and maybe some adults!) will be able to sleep in the following day. Dress super warmly! Please do not bring flashlights since this will reduce our ability to view the sky.
PLEASE NOTE: This event will be cancelled if the sky is cloudy.
However, if the sky is clear, we're looking forward to seeing you and your friends!
