Total Lunar Eclipse Viewing Event says
The Denver Astronomical Society and the University of Denver are teaming up to host a public viewing event at DU’s Historic Chamberlin Observatory. This is the fourth and final Total Lunar Eclipse of the 2014-2015 Tetrad, and will feature a totally eclipsed Supermoon.

The Lunar Eclipse viewing event is being held from 6:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. on Sunday, September 27, 2015 at the observatory, which is located in Denver’s Observatory Park at 2930 E. Warren Avenue. Moonrise is at 6:43 p.m., with the eclipse beginning at 7:07 p.m., continuing to totality at 8:47 p.m., and finishing at 10:27 p.m.

The public is invited to the family-friendly event, which will feature free viewing through telescopes provided by members of The Denver Astronomical Society. The public is also invited to view the Moon and other celestial objects through the 1894 Alvan Clark-Saegmuller 20-inch refractor telescope for $2 per person, or $5 per family.

All donations will go toward Chamberlin Observatory, ensuring that the observatory and its outreach programs will continue to dazzle and delight the public for years to come.
