First a Solar Eclipse, Now a Lunar Eclipse
Twin Falls (KLIX) A little more than a week ago many Idahoans witnessed a partial solar eclipse. Coming up this weekend people will be able to see a partial lunar eclipse. On Monday June 4th a lunar eclipse will be seen from about 3am to 6am. The Herrett Center’s Centennial Observatory will open for a full viewing that morning. Now only 32 percent of the full moon will be in the Earth’s Shadow at the peak of the eclipse. Also, coming up on Tuesday a very rare event can be witnessed. Venus will go between the Sun and Earth. This event hasn’t been witnessed since 1882 and won’t be seen again until 2117. Chris Anderson with the observatory will be in Monday, and have more on this special event.
