Total Lunar Eclipse Community Event


A summary of the program.

The cosmos is a vibrant and a lively place! And majesty and magnificence of the cosmos is more intensely felt during celestial spectacles. July 27th – 28th, 2018 happens to be a rare moment in our lifetime to witness the longest lunar eclipse in the century. And even more special: it is a Total Lunar Eclipse, allowing us to get a stunning view of the Blood Moon!
