A total lunar eclipse will occur on the evening of Jan. 20 that promises to be spectacular for all of the Americas. The Door Peninsula Astronomical Society will open the Astronomy Center and Leif Everson Observatory to the public at 7 pm that evening for a viewing.
The eclipse will first be visible at 9:10 pm, with totality beginning at 10:41 pm and lasting until 11:44 pm. The moon will be high in the sky and very bright as the eclipse begins. Sunglasses can be worn until the moon dims. At totality, stars begin to appear, and deep-sky objects are visible with binoculars and telescopes. The Astronomy Center is located at 2200 Utah St. in Sturgeon Bay. Please dim headlights if possible as you arrive.
