"Super Blood Wolf Moon"

Total Lunar Eclipse January 20-21, 2019

Free Viewing session at the RPSEC from 10:00 PM - 12:15 AM

The DuPont Planetarium at the Ruth Patrick Science Education Center on the campus of the University of South Carolina Aiken will be hosting a FREE lunar eclipse viewing on January 20, 2019. We will begin setting up for the event at about 10:00 PM and will stay at least through the maximum eclipse at about 12:15 AM. We will have the observatory open and other options for viewing the night sky.

The first eclipse of 2019 has been named the "Super Blood Wolf Moon." Why has it been given such an interesting name?

You may watch the "Super Blood Wolf Moon" from anywhere that you have a view of the Moon. We will have telescopes available for you if you are interested in visiting us at the Ruth Patrick Science Education Center.
