Join us to view the Total Lunar Eclipse of September 27 - 28, 2015

Join us at the Hume Cronyn Memorial Observatory as the Department of Physics and Astronomy, the Centre for Planetary Science and Exploration (CPSX), the Canadian Lunar Research Network, and the London Centre of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada host the viewing of the total lunar eclipse of September 27 - 28,  2015.

This eclipse is unique in a couple of ways. This is the last total lunar eclipse visible from London until January 2019. The eclipse will take place during the ‘supermoon’. A supermoon occurs when the full (or new) Moon will be at its closest to Earth in its orbit. Join us at the observatory with your family and friends to view this special celestial event on 27th September.
