In celebration of Science Literacy Week, join us for an evening to view the last visible total lunar eclipse until 2019 accompanied by a series of short lectures on astronomy. On September 27, the moon will pass through Earth's shadow, blocking any direct sunlight to the moon and causing it to glow red. The eclipse will also be streamed live on screen in case of weather. Attendees will get a chance to tour UTSC's observatory and look through our telescopes.
Refreshments will be provided.
About Science Literacy Week
Science Literacy Week is a coast to coast celebration encompassing over 100 such institutions from nearly 50 cities. It is a forum for all these great organizations to showcase the amazing work they do year round. Whether it’s in highlighting great books, hands on demonstrations, talks by great scientists or so much more, my hope is that you’ll learn a lot and have a great time in the process.
