TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE PARTY SATURDAY, MARCH 03, 2007 at SUNSET
The Seminole Community College Planetarium, in conjunction with the Central Florida Astronomical Society would like to invite you to witness the first Total Lunar Eclipse seen from Central Florida in over two years! Please join us at Sunset on Saturday, March 3rd to observe the Red Moon Rising in the sky. The moon will be rising in Central Florida in the middle of totality, therefore the eclipsed moon will be seen rising in the east right after sunset with a reddish crimson hue. Telescopes will be set up for viewing. Our view of the eclipse starts right after sunset and will last about 1 hour and fifteen minutes.
The Eclipse will begin at 6:25 PM for Orlando;
And the Eclipse will end at 7:44 PM.
By far the best way to enjoy the Lunar Eclipse in Central Florida is to attend RED MOON RISING at the Seminole Community College Planetarium in Sanford. We will have telescopes available for the public to look through for FREE! Experts will also be on hand to answer any questions.
As always, News Media are welcome at our events.
