Starting at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 27, Pajarito Environmental Education Center (PEEC) is bringing out the telescopes to observea lunar eclipse from the Los Alamos Nature Center.
From the nature center, the moon will appear full as Earth passes between the sun and the moon. During the eclipse, the moon will take on a red glow from light traveling through the edges of the Earth’s atmosphere. It is termed a “supermoon” eclipse, because the moon is closer to Earth on the 27th and 28th of this month than any other time of the year.
Join PEEC’s local astronomers to observe the last total lunar eclipse until 2018 and learn more about our wonderful night sky. For more information this or other PEEC programs, visit www.peecnature.org, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 505.662.0460.
