The general public is invited to join astronomer John Zielinski for an evening at Rice Creek Field Station's observatory. Participants will have the chance to gaze through the observatory's large 16" wide telescope inside the rotating dome to view the May 15 lunar eclipse. This event will take place on Sunday, May 15 from 10:20 pm until 1 am (technically ending Monday, May 16). The most interesting part of the eclipse will be from 10:28 pm until 12:12 am.


Since clear weather is needed for observing the night sky, interested participants should call (315) 312-6620 (number updated on 5/6/22) after 7 pm on the evening of the event to hear a recorded message announcing whether or not the weather conditions will allow the observation session will take place.


Additional 2022 telescope observation nights can be seen on the monthly telescope event page
