Event description
Join us on Sunday January 20, 2019, 6:00PM - Midnight for a special viewing of the Total Lunar Eclipse
We welcome you aboard the USS Hornet Sea, Air & Space Museum to observe this Total Lunar Eclipse from the Flight Deck! The USS Hornet served as the recovery vessel for the Apollo 11 & 12 lunar landing missions—the spaceflights that landed the first humans on the Moon 50 years ago this year!—and is the ultimate viewing platform from which to enjoy this celestial event with family, friends, and fellow moongazers. Unlike a solar eclipse, you don't need any special equipment to enjoy a lunar eclipse—it can be seen with the naked eye, though to view the moon in even more detail, feel free to bring a pair of binoculars or a telescope!

Schedule of Events:
Eclipse: will occur between 6:36PM - 11:48PM, with the total eclipse taking place around 9:12PM
