Total Lunar Eclipse: October 27, 2004
Witness a total lunar eclipse occurring the evening of Wednesday, October 27, 2004. Observers in Mishawaka, IN, can visit the PHM Planetarium and Air/Space Museum for a planetarium program about the moon and to observe the eclipse with telescopes. The moon rises at 5:36 p.m. EST; the visible part of the eclipse gets underway at 8:14 p.m. EST. While you are waiting for the eclipse to begin, try some lunar activities (below).
