Mt. Airy Under the Stars Special Event – LUNAR ECLIPSE
January 20 @ 9:15 pm - January 21 @ 2:50 am
Special Event – Sunday night, January 20 – TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE!!! Assuming clear skies, Mr. & Mrs. Feller will be at the school for the total lunar eclipse coming up on Sunday night of MLK weekend. It will occur late at night, but since the school is closed (and many adults do not have work) on Monday, it is worth staying up for! We will open the school for bathrooms and warmth. All children must be accompanied at all times during the eclipse watch by a parent/guardian. For this event there will be no indoor science activity if the skies are cloudy/rainy/snowy. If the viewing is good, come prepared with chairs, blankets, warm layers of clothes, and snacks to get you through the evening. We will start around 9:15 pm and stay as late as we can. (The last moments of the eclipse will be at 2:48am.) Totality is at 12:13am.
