Get a front row seat for a total lunar eclipse on Sunday evening, Sept. 27, at Western Nevada Collegeâ€™s Jack C. Davis Observatory in Carson City.
The college invites the public to view a lunar eclipse through its variety of telescopes.
Dr. Tom Herring, the observatoryâ€™s director, will host the free viewing party and answer questions, starting at 6 p.m.
â€œThe penumbral shadow will already be on the moon when it rises around 7 p.m., and the eclipse will reach totality at approximately 7:47 p.m.,â€ Herring said.
The event lasts until 10:30 pm. Northern Nevadans wonâ€™t be able to see another lunar eclipse in this area until January 2019.
