The new telescopes at the Leif Everson Observatory in Sturgeon Bay were really able to show off what they can do. The Door County Astronomical Society hosted a viewing of the "Blood Moon" lunar eclipse at the observatory on Sunday night. Dave Lenius of the DCAS was thrilled it was a clear night and images of the eclipse were shown inside the observatory. Lenius says about 25 people showed up and they got quite a treat when the eclipse reached totality.
Lenius is working on being able to save images from the telescope and post them online. The DCAS meets the first Tuesday of every month at the Ray and Ruthie Stonecipher Astronomy Center in Sturgeon Bay.
