Cabildo throws open doors of science museum for public to see total lunar eclipse tomorrow night

Updated 26 July: Not only will most of us be able to see at least some of the total lunar eclipse tomorrow tonight, especially those who have a view to the eastern horizon, but anyone near the Museo de la Ciencia y el Cosmos in La Laguna will have a particularly great view as the museum opens its doors between 9 and 11pm for the public, with free entry to the telescopes especially-installed on the large outside terrace for the eclipse. The Cabildo, which has jurisdiction for Museos de Tenerife, says that viewers will also be able to see Mars, Venus, Jupier and Saturn quite clearly, and for those who can’t be in the museum nor get a great view elsewhere, the eclipse will also be transmitted through the Museos de Tenerife Facebook page HERE between 10 and 10.30pm: the FB page also has directions to the museum, which is easy enough to find in any case since it’s on the tram line a couple of stops before the La Trinidad terminus in La Laguna.

Original post 23 July: This Friday night, 27 July, we in the Canaries will be able to see a full lunar eclipse. The timings below are from Time and Date HERE, and show that the moon will start to turn blood red around 9pm our time, the whole thing lasting until around 11.30pm. It should be quite low in the sky, unfortunately, so not all of us will get to see it, but anyone with a clear view towards to east should get the whole show!
