Watch eclipse at Crossroads

A great way to watch the upcoming lunar eclipse is at the astronomy observatory in Sturgeon Bay. On January 20th there will be a “Blood Moon” lunar eclipse where the Earth’s shadow will cast on the moon. The full moon will turn an eerie shade of orange. On that night the Door County Astronomical Society will be hosting a viewing at the Leif Everson Observatory and Stonecipher Astronomy Center in Sturgeon Bay where you can view the eclipse through a telescope. Even if it is not a clear night, the Leif Everson Observatory will show pictures of the eclipse from other places where the sky is clear. Coggin Heeringa is the director of Crossroads at Big Creek and she says the best part happens when all the other stars become visible when the moon gets dark.



The eclipse actually starts at 9:34 PM but the observatory and astronomy center will open starting at 7:00 PM.
