Total Eclipse of the Moon

Total lunar eclipse takes place during the early morning hours of April 15.

In the early morning hours of April 15 the Earth, Moon and Sun will align, creating a total lunar eclipse visible from anywhere in the Tri-state. The moon will appear coppery red during the eclipse, which is why many refer to it as a “blood moon.” Dr. Wes Ryle, assistant professor of Math and Physics at Thomas More College, and Cincinnati Observatory Assistant Director and Outreach Astronomer Dean Regas discuss the lunar eclipse, and how you can best enjoy the astronomical show.

This Saturday evening Dr. Ryle will offer a presentation on how to prepare for the eclipse, followed by a telescope viewing at The Bank of Kentucky Observatory at TMC. April 14 from 10:00 PM to 4:00 AM you can camp-out on the Observatory grounds to view the eclipse.

The Cincinnati Observatory will hold a lunar eclipse viewing April 15 from 2:00 to 5:30 AM. All viewings at both observatories depend, of course, on the weather.
