Lunar Eclipse Event Free to Public

 Bundle up and get ready. On Jan. 20, Smoky Mountain STEM Collaborative invites the community to come and watch the total lunar eclipse at Jackson County Airport.

“We are very excited about this because a total lunar eclipse means the moon will actually look red,”said Randi Neff, Smoky Mountain STEM Collaborative Project Coordinator. “Some people call this a Blood Moon.”

Guests should plan to arrive at Jackson County Airport sometime between 10-11 p.m to get a seat and to participate in moon viewing activities like learning lunar geography, and other interesting facts about the lunar eclipse. Free hot chocolate will also be provided while supplies last.

The eclipse reaches totality at 11:41 p.m. and will last one hour and two minutes.

For more information on the event, contact Randi Neff at r_neff@southwesterncc.edu.
