Lunar Eclipse Viewing on Sunday

Alvin Community College will host a viewing of an upcoming lunar eclipse on Sunday, September 27 at the college observatory.

There will be six to eight telescopes set up around the observatory for stargazers to get a glimpse of the moon from 7 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.

Parking will be available by the Science/Health Science Building of Mustang Road.

The Observatory opened in 2010 and was part of the 19.9 million bond issue approved by voters in 2005.

Located south of ACC Science/Health Science Building, the Observatory is a 8 by 8-foot building with a 15-foot diameter and is topped by a dome. The structure is used by ACC students as well as the public during certain events.

For more information about the Observatory or the open house event, call 281-756-5672.
