Total Lunar Eclipse Events
The Lunar Eclipse is coming!
On Sunday, January 20, 2019, the moon will enter a full lunar eclipse. Join us for this exciting event at two Utah State Parks. Both Dead Horse Point State Park and Antelope Island State Park will be hosting special eclipse viewings that are open to the public.
Antelope Island State Park
Join park staff and Dark Sky Layton at 8:00 pm in the visitor center for a presentation on the total lunar eclipse. After the presentation, we will venture outside to witness the eclipse through telescopes and binoculars. The event will also be projected on the screen inside the visitor center. Hot chocolate and donuts will be provided (while supplies last). The entrance gate will remain open until 9 pm that evening. Entrance fees apply.
Dead Horse Point State Park
Join park staff for a viewing of the lunar eclipse at the visitor center. Be sure to dress warm, plan to arrive at 9:30 p.m., and bring binoculars if you have them. The event is clear sky and weather dependent, if the Moon isn’t visible, it will be canceled. Give the park a call to check on updates: 435-259-2614
