Night Vision: Moon Phases and Eclipses
Posted January 14, 2019 - by Nick Jarvis
Night Vision is a recurring live lecture series in which we explore the sights to see in the night sky, and each week we address a special topic of interest.
In this week's Night Vision, we'll explore the astronomy of lunar and solar eclipses; we'll take a sneak peek at the upcoming lunar eclipse on January 20, 2019; we'll trace the origins of the now-ubiquitous terms "Blood Moon" and "Supermoon"; we'll look at future lunar and solar eclipses of the coming years; and we'll discuss ways that eclipses have been important moments in the history of astronomy and the history of... well... history.
Night Vision will be hosted by Nick Jarvis on Thursday, January 17th and Saturday, January 19th at 6:45 in the dome theater. Tickets are just $2.00 per person for the public, and free for members of Clark Planetarium. Get your tickets now.
