Super Moon Eclipse - Monday 28th September

We have taken the decision not to run an event at school for Monday's eclipse due to the questionable weather forecast. You may like to keep an eye on the weather though as it could still clear up and you may catch a glimpse of the totally eclipsed Moon between 3:11 am and 4:23 am.

You do not need any special equipment for the eclipse and can enjoy it with your naked eye only. However, you could use a small telescope or a pair of binoculars if you have them available. Make sure you are wrapped up warm and in a safe location.

If the weather is cloudy you can watch a live feed of the eclipse on NASA TV or at the Virtual Telescope Project.

In the meantime here is a video all about the eclipse:
