IU Hosts Lookout For Lunar Eclipse Wednesday Night

Last updated on Monday, February 18, 2008

(BLOOMINGTON) - If you need something to do on Wednesday night, grab a cooler full of drinks, bag a sandwich and head up to the top of Henderson Garage in Bloomington to see the lunar eclipse that is due to begin that night.

Officials at Indiana University say a total lunar eclipse, which only happens twice a year, will start at 8:43pm Wednesday night and become a full eclipse between 10:01 and 10:59pm.

Indiana University will be providing telescopes on top of the garage structure as well as astronomy students and faculty to answer questions.

Or, if you want something closer to home, take your drinks and sandwich out in the back yard and enjoy the show!
