Next Event: Eclipse Party January 31

On the morning of January 31st (think of it as really late on the night of the 30th) the EAS and the Science Factory will be teaming up to offer viewing of the total lunar eclipse. This will be at the Science Factory, not at the reservoir. The eclipse starts at 3:48 a.m., totality runs from 4:51-6:07, and the eclipse ends at 7:11 (about 20 minutes before sunrise). The Most Wanted Espresso food truck will be on hand that morning to serve hot coffee and breakfast.

Thank you to the Canadian Meteorlogical Center and for this forecast of our observing conditions:
