The upcoming lunar eclipse will be the topic of a planetarium show by Dr. Ken Coles, Geoscience Department. The show will be Wednesday December 15, 2010, at 7:00 p.m. in the IUP Planetarium.

On the evening of Monday, December 20, the moon will pass through the darkest part of Earth’s shadow. Come to the show on the night of the 15th to find out what you’ll see (weather permitting!) and why, as well as other objects in the current night sky.

The IUP Planetarium is located in Weyandt Hall. Shows are first-come, first-seated, and it is not feasible for us to take advance reservations.

If you would like to bring a large group (ten or more people), please contact us so we can discuss how to accommodate you, as seating is limited: 724-357-5626 or
