Total Lunar Eclipse
Sunday, January 20, 2019
7:33 PM – 10:50 PM

On Sunday, January 20 our Moon moves through Earth’s shadow in an event known as a total lunar eclipse.  Weather permitting, the entire event is visible throughout the United States.

Eclipse Times (PST)

7:33 PM     Partial Eclipse Begins
8:41 PM     Total Eclipse Begins
9:12 PM     Maximum Eclipse
9:43 PM     Total Eclipse Ends
10:50 PM     Partial Eclipse Ends

The Hiller Aviation Museum will be closed during the January 20 lunar eclipse, but the event may be viewed safely from any location with a clear view of the Moon.

Enter the amazing dome of a Starlab planetarium and see the glittering stars of the night sky projected overhead. Discover the brightest constellations visible each night and the stars used by pilots, sailors and others to navigate across vast and featureless oceans.

Children ages 5 and up are welcome with an accompanying adult at any presentation time. Children ages 3-5 may attend the first scheduled presentation each day, with one accompanying adult required for each child. Children age 2 and under are not recommended. Participants must craw through a short tunnel with reduced lighting to access the inside of the Starlab dome and remain seated throughout the 30-minute presentation.

Space for each presentation is limited, and a separate Starlab ticket ($5 per person, $4 Members) is required for each participant in addition to Museum admission. Tickets may be purchased at the Museum Gift Shop on the day of the program.
