View Lunar Eclipse on Sept. 27 from Innsbrook

Join other Innsbrook nature enthusiasts in witnessing one of the biggest and longest total lunar eclipses on Sunday evening, Sept. 27. Observers in Eastern North America, including the St. Louis region and Innsbrook, will be able to see all phases of the eclipse that will coincidentally occur this time when the moon is closest to the Earth. The full moon will enter the Earth’s shadow at 7:11 pm, shortly after rising in the east a few minutes before 7 pm. The total eclipse will begin just after 9 pm and last well over an hour. A great viewing spot should be on the Lionshead Beach on Lake Aspen. Meetup anytime that evening with your binoculars, camera, jacket, and chair to view nature’s own fireworks with the expected blood-red glow of what is being called a “Supermoon” rising and reflecting over the lake. As it will be several years before another total lunar eclipse is visible from Innsbrook, please share this invite and page link https://ibknature.com/blog/ with your Innsbrook friends and neighbors.
