Have you heard about the lunar eclipse tomorrow (Friday) morning? The near-total lunar eclipse is a once-in-a-lifetime sight and will span over three hours and 28 minutes, starting at 2:18 a.m. and peaking at 4:02 a.m.
If you are interested in viewing the eclipse in a state park, you can! While our parks are usually off-limits at night – stargazing is a legitimate recreational pursuit, and is allowed except at a few specific locations (the day use area trails at John Bryan, Nelson Kennedy Ledges, and Hocking Hills; the Gorge Overlook area and Lyons Falls trail at Mohican; the boardwalk at Maumee Bay; The Lusk Lock and Sprucevale day use areas at Beaver Creek; and The Mount Jeez area and the Butternut trail at Malabar Farm).
You can also check out the eclipse at The John Glenn Astronomy Park in Hocking Hills.
Please respect the rules – if you aren’t stargazing, you will be asked to leave – and be safe! We hope you have a great view! Ohio. Find It Here.
