Last Call

All members of the University are invited to join Penn astrophysicists on Bower Field Thursday night (September 26) to watch the lunar eclipsethe last one to be seen between now and the year 2000.

This is the first public event since Astronomy and Physics merged last year. With binoculars and a Mead telescope brought down from DRL's rooftop observatory, Drs. Steven Myers and Paul Steinhardt and others will act as informal tour guides to the celestial show. The gathering starts at 9 p.m.; the department will provide refreshments. In case of rain, the event will be cancelled; if in doubt, call 898-5995.

Above, from Astrophysics's computer lab, an imaged map of the the sky as it will look at the time of the eclipse, looking south toward Saturn and the constellation Pegasus.
