blood-moon

On Sunday, 27 September we will witness at total lunar eclipse. The penumbral eclipse begins at 5:11 PM, the umbral eclipse at 6:07 PM, with mid-totality occurring at 7:47 PM. The umbral eclipse ends at 9:27 PM and the penumbral eclipse at 10:22 PM. We will have the SCC Observatory open that evening at 6:30 PM as the moon rise here occurs at about 7 PM (ten minutes after sunset). Weather looks good for the viewing session tonight.

Please, no food or drinks and only use red light flashlights to preserve viewer’s night vision. No pets please: They are prohibited by Transport Canada regulations for this airfield. Please bring your own telescopes if you like: our members certainly will.
