January 20 @ 9:30 am - 10:30 pm
A lunar eclipse will occur on Jan. 20, starting at 9:36 p.m. and lasting until 2:48 a.m. the following day. Totality will occur between 11:41 p.m. and 12:43 a.m.
The Emera Astronomy Center will be hosting a free eclipse viewing event at the Astronomy Center starting at 9:30 p.m., where the historic Clark Telescope will be pointed right at the moon. Staff will be on hand to explain the phenomenon and help everyone see it in all its splendor.
Unfortunately, this event is weather dependent, so if the sky is cloudy it will not be visible. NASA and many other organizations will be doing their own streaming events that you can watch online.
To celebrate the eclipse, the public show on Sunday, Jan. 20 at 3:30 p.m. is Totality: Explore the Wonder of Eclipses.
