The Perot Museum of Nature and Science will present a lunar eclipse watch party on the plaza during the overnight hours between Monday and Tuesday.
You won’t need a telescope to see the eclipse, but you will need to stay awake into the wee hours because the entire lunar eclipse takes place from about midnight to 5:30 a.m. for Texas star-gazers. However, the most exciting part of the eclipse – the total eclipse – will begin a little after 2 a.m.
Bring blankets, lawn chairs and even your own telescopes for this after-hours affair. The Museum will have some telescopes set up on the plaza, plus museum educators will be ready to answer questions about the night sky. Or take a break from the plaza to journey through our galaxy and beyond in the ever-popular Portable Universe Planetarium, which will be set up in the lobby from midnight to 3 a.m.
