The Fort Hays State University Astronomy Club is hosting a viewing of the lunar eclipse of the Harvest Moon Sunday.

The eclipse has a duration of about three hours and can be viewed without telescopes from any location in the area.

Different geographic locations can be found on the NASA description of the eclipse in a video at http://youtu.be/j7RMmitoex0 or a story at http://science.nasa.gov/science-news/science-at-nasa/2015/22sep_lunareclipse/.

The FHSU club will set up telescopes and have binoculars available for the viewing, set for 8:30 to 10 p.m. Viewers are welcome to bring their own binoculars or telescope.

The viewing location will be on the Big Creek dike near the walking bridge that connects the main campus to the Gross Memorial Coliseum/Cunningham Hall complex.
