The viewing will take place in lot P8 on the UNC Asheville campus beginning at 8:30 p.m. The eclipse begins at 9:07 p.m., with totality beginning at 10:11 p.m., and the event will end at midnight. We will be turning off the lights in P8 to provide for a better viewing experience.
A determination about the weather and possible cancellation will be made prior to the event and will be posted to lookoutobservatory.unca.edu.
This is the last total lunar eclipse viewable in Asheville until 2019, so even if you don’t join us, be sure to look up that night to catch a glimpse of it.
