Lunar Eclipse Wednesday 31st January is ON

31 01 2018

Hi All,

The weather for tonight is just OK to have a Lunar Eclipse viewing night at Terrey Hills.
The cloud cover will be about 50% and increasing to 70% during the Eclipse.
This should allow us to see some of the Eclipse starting.
I will open the gate at 10:30 PM, See you all there.

Hi Phil,

Thanks for the email.

I am a former member of NSAS (2006), would I be able to come along to the viewing tonight?

Hi Phil

Bit of info on tonight’s eclipse which some people may not know—and which might encourage them to come out late tonight.

It is a “super blue blood full eclipse moon” which last occurred in Aus in 1982. However, in the Western Hemisphere it last occurred in 1866—it is a VERY RARE event!!!

Members can Google further info for themselves but I think it would be worth forwarding this e-mail to the group to alert them.

I’ll leave it with you.

Regards, Lawrie.
