Total lunar eclipse on the 15 of June
with Dr Vincent Couling, UKZN.
A talk by Dr Vincent Couling is NEVER to be missed! His passion and knowledge are electrifying! By his use of a telescope and camera combination and with the image then projected on a screen, over 100 of us were able to get up close to the action as the Earth’s shadow crept across the craters and mountains of the moon. The total lunar eclipse occured when the entire moon entered the Earth’s umbra – the darkest part of its shadow. Dr Couling always does mesmerizing experiments and equipment and this kept us all, young and old, entranced until the beautiful moment of the eclipse itself.
