Program Description


On the night of Sunday, May 15th we will be treated to a total eclipse of the moon.  Many lunar eclipses, like the one last November, occur during the wee hours of the morning and are missed by many. This upcoming event will be between 8 and 11 PM, before bedtime! The next red moon will be in 2029.  In this talk you will learn what to look for during the 85 minutes when the moon will be completely immersed in the earth’s shadow and the mechanics as to why eclipses of the moon and sun take place. Register online for this interesting and informative program.

Please be aware that there is no need to register more than once.

The link for the Zoom Meeting will be sent in an email.
