Total Eclipse of the Moon


It’s rare and special and definitely worth staying up late to see.
Keaton Bell of the U-T Department of Astronomy shared with us details on the lunar eclipse, and how we can make sure to get a good look.

The lunar eclipse in Austin takes place on Saturday, September 27th beginning around 8pm and ends near 11:30 pm.

There aren’t any public viewings of the lunar eclipse this weekend at UT, but you can take part in the public viewings offered through U-T’s Astronomy outreach program on Wednesday’s, Friday’s and Saturday’s. Check their website for times and dates.
