Weekend To Do List, January 18-20, 2019

Do: Super Blood Moon Eclipse - Telescope Viewing Party 

When: Sunday, January 20th, 9pm-1am
Where: Market Square Garage / Walnut St., Knoxville 

Here in Knoxville we get to experience a rare celestial phenomenon. A Total Lunar Eclipse with a Super Moon. What is that you ask? It’s an event where the Sun, Earth, & Moon are in perfect alignment, with the Earth in the middle. When aligned, the Earth blocks the sunlight, casting its shadow on the moon. Thus turning the moon an eery burnt red color. A Super Moon is just when the Moon is a little closer to Earth than normal thus making it look slightly larger in the sky. Luckily, they fall together this time.

So here are the details: Go to the Market Square Garage. It’s free parking. Easy access. You can park, hang out, take a look, then go enjoy your night. Light pollution is no matter because it’s the Moon. A telescope will be set up at 9pm. The Eclipse begins at 9:36pm. Totality (when it’s red) is from 11:41pm-12:43am.
