Partial Lunar Eclipse

28/10/2023 @ 9:00 PM - 29/10/2023 @ 1:00 AM

Free – د.إ60.00

Mark your calendar for October 28, 2023, and come join us at the Al Thuraya Astronomy Center to witness the magic of a Partial Lunar Eclipse in the company of fellow astronomy enthusiasts.

A partial lunar eclipse happens when the Earth moves between the Sun and the Full Moon, but they are not precisely aligned. Only part of the Moon’s visible surface moves into the dark part of the Earth’s shadow.

 

  1. Astronomy Experts: Our team of passionate and knowledgeable astronomers will be on hand to guide you through the eclipse, providing insights, interesting facts, and answering your questions about this celestial event.
  2. State-of-the-Art Telescopes: We’ll provide high-quality telescopes for attendees to observe the eclipse up close and personal, allowing you to witness the intricate details of the moon’s journey into Earth’s shadow.
  3. Astrophotography Opportunities: Bring your smartphone and capture stunning images of the eclipse. Our experts will be available to provide tips and guidance on astrophotography techniques.
  4. Educational Presentations: Before the eclipse begins, we’ll host informative presentations about lunar eclipses, their significance, and their place in the grand tapestry of our solar system.
  5. Family-Friendly Atmosphere: This event is perfect for families, friends, and individuals of all ages. Children and adults alike can explore the wonders of the night sky and cultivate a deep appreciation for astronomy.
