Sky Tonight Special—Lunar Eclipse

A Viewing Event

Join us at the Fleet on Sunday, January 20, to celebrate a fascinating lunar eclipse. The spectacle will feature a beautiful, rare, red moon during totality. Beginning at 4 p.m., you can participate in solar system-themed, hands-on activities in the theater lobby. At 6 p.m., make your way to the Heikoff Giant Dome Theater for a special viewing of one of the Fleet’s most popular films, Hubble, narrated by the one and only Leonardo DiCaprio. At 7:30 p.m., the Fleet’s resident astronomer, Dr. Lisa Will, will take you on a journey through our solar system and explain more about lunar eclipses during an exclusive presentation of the Fleet’s The Sky Tonight planetarium show. From about 4:30 to 10 p.m., the San Diego Astronomy Association invites you to use their telescopes to see the lunar eclipse and the red moon (weather permitting).

The next such astronomical event won't be until 2022, so don't miss this one!
