Physics to host public viewing of lunar eclipse Sunday

Submitted by Kim Coy

The physics department will host a public viewing of the lunar eclipse from 8-10:30 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 27. Large telescopes and binoculars will be set up on the west side of Cardwell Hall on the Manhattan campus to view the eclipse.

The harvest moon will pass into the Earth's umbra shadow beginning at 8:07 p.m. Full eclipse will begin at 9:11 p.m. Although the eclipse will be beautiful to the naked eye, viewing through telescopes gives another exciting perspective.

Your hosts will be physics professors and amateur astronomers from K-State's physics department. Anyone is free to stop between 8-10:30 p.m.
