Total Eclipse Public Viewing

Schouweiler Planetarium and Fort Wayne Astronomical Society are co-sponsoring two public viewing sites for this Sunday’s Total Eclipse of the Moon. The eclipse partial phase begins when the moon enters the Earth’s shadow at 9:07 PM. The total eclipse occurs between 10:11 PM and 11:11 PM. During totality the Full Moon will turn a dim dark reddish-orange. The eclipse’s partial phase concludes 12:12AM Monday September 28.

FWAS members and Schouweiler Planetarium Staff will staff the eclipse viewing sites:

  • New Haven: Fort Wayne Astronomical Society Observatory in Jefferson Township Park.
  • Fort Wayne: University of Saint Francis East Campus adjacent to the Achatz Hall of Science and Planetarium building.

More information, instructions to the sites, and times may be found on Featured Events.

Whether you watch the eclipse with us, or choose to do so with family and friends from your own yard the eclipse, the last for several years, promises to be a great one. Hopefully the weather will make eclipse viewing without clouding out the sky or raining.
