Lunar Eclipse 2019

The Rochester Astronomy Club organized a public viewing event for observing the 2019 lunar eclipse. The forecast was for brutally cold temps, so the club secured the Olmsted History Center with access to a warm building for thawing. The location has quite a bit of light pollution, but since the goal was to observe the moon, it wouldn’t matter much.

The event had quite a large turnout! I wish that I had more pictures to share, but my phone battery died in the sub-zero temps within a few minutes of exposure. Fortunately, many club members were able to take some nice photos. Check out their website if you would like to see them. http://rochesterskies.org

-9 air temps…. not very pleasant for standing still outside
