It obviously wasn’t too early on Jan. 31 at Jack C. Davis Observatory for about 5 dozen people to enjoy the first blue moon total lunar eclipse in 152 years.
KTVN Channel 2 from Reno, volunteers and community members enjoyed the lunar eclipse viewing party early that morning at Western Nevada College.
“We had approximately 60 attendees show up between 3 and 5:30 a.m. to enjoy the sight with us!” said Jack C. Davis Observatory director Dr. Thomas Herring. “Get ready for the next one Jan 21, 2019!”
The next lunar eclipse that will be visible in western Nevada occurs in less than a year. However, the next blue moon total lunar eclipse won’t happen until 2028.
