Looking for A Free and Fabulous Wednesday Night?

Go see the lunar eclipse at the U of S observatory on Wed. February 20th!

Here's the Star Phoenix Article:

The public is invited by the University of Saskatchewan to take part in a viewing of the lunar eclipse, which will take place the night of Feb. 20.

The U of S observatory will be open for viewing of the total eclipse from 7:30 p.m. until 11:30 p.m.

This is the first of two lunar eclipses in 2008, and the only total lunar eclipse until 2010. The planet Saturn and bright star Regulus, not usually visible from earth, will be near the moon during the eclipse.

The eclipse begins at 7:43 p.m. and ends at 11:09 p.m.

Admission to the event is free. Call 966-6429 for more details.

I hope to be in South Carolina on the 20th, hopefully it's clear enough to see the eclipse. And if not, maybe I will just hop in the plane and go somewhere clear.
