Astronomy Club Witnesses Lunar Eclipse
11/23/2021

Astronomy Club Witnesses Lunar EclipseOn November 19, Dr. Paula Fekete and three members of the Astronomy Club woke up very early! There was a nearly total eclipse of the Moon. Humans have not seen a partial eclipse lasting this long (6 hours and 2 minutes) since 1440, and they won’t see another one this long again until 2669. The rarity of such an event is due to three factors:
1. The Moon must be at apogee: a micromoon, i.e., located furthest from Earth, moving at its slowest rate.
2. The Earth must be near aphelion (furthest from the Sun) when the Earth casts a “straighter” shadow onto the Moon.
3. The Sun-Earth-Moon alignment must be almost perfect.
The eclipse was nearly total: a 0.974 fraction of the Moon’s diameter, and 99.1% of the Moon’s area was covered by Earth’s umbra. They began watching it around 0345 as the maximum occurred at 0402 when the picture was taken. CDT Jacob Willis took the image of the Moon ’23 (CIC of the Astronomy Club) assisted by CDT Jaxon Porter ‘23 and CDT Ramsey Rouabhia ‘22. There are 137 Extracurricular Clubs, each contributing to leader development within the Corps of Cadets and made possible by your support. Thank you!
