Supermoon viewing


Location: Jordan Hall of Science Observatory

Moon viewing event

On Sunday, for the first time in more than 30 years, a total lunar eclipse will occur during a “supermoon” — when the moon is closest to the Earth.  The eclipse will cause the moon to turn a deep red.

You are invited to join Notre Dame astrophysicists on Sunday evening to view this spectacular event at the Jordan Hall observatory.  The eclipse will begin at 9:07 p.m., with the total eclipse lasting from 10:11-11:43 p.m. The observatory will be open to the public from 8:30 – 11:00 p.m. with several telescopes available to view the night sky.

To access the observatory, take the elevator on the south end of Jordan Hall to the fourth floor. Then take the stairs to the rooftop of the building.

This event is open to the public. Learn more about Sunday's lunar eclipse.
