During the pre-dawn hours of April 15, 2014, Evanston had its first chance to view a total lunar eclipse since December 2010. Despite inclement weather, the Dearborn Observatory was open to the public to view this event from 1-4 am CDT. Admission was free and all were welcome. Around 175 people attend the event and skys cleared enough at 3am for visitors to view the eclipse.
Thank you to Annas Rahman, Sara Rastegar and Sam Cohen, who worked the event.
