Lunar Eclipse - Public Outreach Event

The NMSU Astronomy Department will be holding a two-part public event for the January 20th total lunar eclipse!

Starting at 7:45 PM, Professor Kristian Finlator will give a talk on the eclipse in the Biology Annex (located here) from 7:45 PM to 8:15 PM.

From 8:30 pm to 10:30 PM the telescopes at Tombaugh Observatory (located here, a short walk/drive from the Biology Annex) will be opened and graduate students will be on hand to answer questions and run the telescopes. Feel free to come to one or both of these events, or to arrive to the telescopes at any time between 8:30 and 10:30. Please keep in mind, the eclipse begins around 8:30, but totality (or, when the moon turns red from fully entering Earth’s shadow) doesn’t begin until ~9:40 PM. The Society of Astronomy Students will also be on site with hot chocolate!

Parking is available at both locations. If there’s a possibility of inclement weather, please call the Observatory Hotline (575-646-6278) to make sure that we will have the telescopes open (if there’s a chance of rain, we will not open the telescopes, and we will leave a message at this number saying so).
