Under A Partial Crimson Moon

November 19, 2021 @ 12:30 am - 7:00 am


On Friday, November 19, 2021 a Partial Lunar Eclipse is taking place and it will be visible to all in New England. This will be an awesome overnight event and Frosty Drew Observatory is opening to celebrate the event starting at 12:30 am offering excellent views of the eclipse. We will stay on site and open until 7:00 am, after the Sun rises.

A Lunar Eclipse happens when the Moon passes into Earth’s shadow. This only happens during the full lunar phase. Since this eclipse will be a near-total eclipse, almost the entire Moon will pass into the Earth’s dark shadow, called the Umbra, with only a sliver remaining in Earth’s secondary shadow, called the Penumbra. During the period around maximum eclipse, some of the Moon will glow a crimson red. This happens due to sunlight filtering through Earth’s atmosphere effectively scattering the violet side of the visible spectrum of light.
