The Cordoba Astronomical Observatory (OAC) located at Laprida 854, will open its doors this Sunday, May 15, for those who want to observe the total lunar eclipse in its facilities guided by expert explanations. Thus, the OAC will remain open from 10:30 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. on Monday.
The Moon will remain illuminated but its brightness will dim starting at 23:28. The edge of the lunar disk will enter the Earth’s umbra, and the shadow of our planet will cover the face of the Moon, starting the partial eclipse.
At 0:30 the Moon will be completely within the umbra and the total eclipse will begin, which will last until 1:54. Then our natural satellite will begin to leave the umbra of the earth, discovering its face again until 2:55 and finally the Moon will leave the twilight at 3:51.
