Lunar Eclipse Viewing Sites 2018 July 27   explain


Lunar Eclipse Watch 2018 is intended to help people watch the eclipse with others, in groups - because it's fun. And because it would be great to share telescopes for planet-viewing.

If you are organising a public eclipse-watching site, then please submit your site on the map above.


Star People with telescopes at the V&A Waterfront.

All you need is:

Soutpansberg Astronomy Club at Mall of the North, Polokwane.




Some typical questions at an eclipse-viewing site:

What's happening?


What's that bright thing near the Moon?



Can I take a photo?


How long will it last?



Is anyone else seeing this, or is it just us in [Johannesburg / Dar es Salaam / whatever town you're in]?



Is it a total eclipse for everyone?


When's the next one?



Why doesn't it happen every month?
