UNT Astronomy to host viewing of Oct. 8 lunar eclipse

urban astronomy centerThe Perot Museum of Nature and Science has teamed with University of North Texas Astronomy to offer free viewing of the Oct. 8 lunar eclipse at UNT’s Rafes Urban Astronomy Center. Astronomy experts from UNT and the Perot Museum will be on hand to discuss the science of lunar eclipses, and attendees can use UNT’s state-of-the-art telescopes to view the Moon.

A lunar eclipse is the point in time when Earth passes directly between the Sun and the Moon, causing the Moon to travel through the umbra of the Earth’s shadow, which gives the Moon a reddish tint.

The Rafes Urban Astronomy Center is located at 2350 Tom Cole Road in Denton. Viewing will begin at 3 a.m. and end at 6 a.m., weather permitting. In the event of inclement weather, a decision to cancel will be made by 1:30 a.m. Oct. 8. Information will be posted on the event’s Facebook page, and participants also can contact Ron DiIulio, UNT Planetarium and Astronomy program director, with questions at 817-929-4095, or Rachel Thompson with the Perot Museum at 940-206-8495.
