GAZE UPON THE STARS WITH US
Gather the family and share in the story of the stars. Join guest Astronomer Dave Schlichting as he leads us on an astounding tour of the magnificent display that is the night sky on the precipice of the Continental Divide. We are elated to offer a number of Star Parties this summer.
Some extra info for this particular Star Party from Dave, the astronomer: That night there will be a major astronomical event – a full lunar eclipse. This occurs when the moon passes into the shadow of Earth. It occurs in two phases: 7:37 pm MST – the eclipse begins when the moon enters the shadow of Earth’s atmosphere (penumbra) 8:34 pm MST – the actual eclipse begins as the moon enters the shadow of Earth (umbra). 9:41 pm – The moon will be fully covered by the Earth’s shadow and appear blood red. 10:43 pm MST – full eclipse ends as the moon begins to exit Earth’s shadow. Mars will also be visible during this time.
