There’s a Lunar Eclipse coming on May 15, and CEED is a great place to see it. You can be with friends, get a great view, and be guided by our good friend Dave Bush from the Vanderbilt Planetarium.
This is your best chance to see an evening lunar eclipse until 2025. At CEED there is open space and relatively few outdoor lights … perfect for sky viewing!
The presentation by expert astronomer Dave Bush and his team will begin inside our newly renovated hall in the Washington Lodge at 8:30 p.m. Dave will explain what causes a lunar eclipse and why the moon during a lunar eclipse is called a Blood Moon.
After the presentation, we’ll move outside to view the eclipse. Dave will set up a telescope, or bring your binoculars. Learn more about this beautiful object that revolves around our planet and stays by Earth’s side in our journeys around the sun. We guarantee after attending this evening, you will never look at the moon the same!
This presentation will be held rain or shine and cloudy or clear. In advance: $15 per adult, $10 per child ages 8-16, children under 8 are free! At the door: $20 per adult and $15 for seniors, veterans, and children. Active-duty military and family are free.
