It’s your last opportunity to see a total lunar eclipse from North America until 2018. And we want to invite you to watch the whole thing with us at the Creation Museum! On September 27, around 9:07 PM, we’ll see the moon start to slip into the moon’s shadow and it will be completely hidden a few hours later. This is an opportunity for the whole family to learn from AiG’s astronomer Dr. Danny Faulkner about God’s creation in outer space, particularly the moon, from a biblical perspective. In a recent Answers magazine article, Dr. Faulkner wrote about how ever since Adam, people have been marveling at the moon in the night sky:
Why did God make a unique moon? Since the first night Adam stared up at the starry heavens, he must have marveled how the “lesser light” illuminated his otherwise dark nights. In recent times, astronomers have discovered other benefits of the moon, which helps to regulate living conditions on the earth. As far as we know, no other planet in the universe has such a perfectly matched satellite.
On this stargazer’s night, we’ll also be offering a few planetarium shows (including the brand-new Aliens: Fact or Fiction?), and other short live presentations.
If the skies are cloudy that night, we’ll open up Legacy Hall and offer a simulcast of the eclipse, recorded and sent over from a different, clear-skied location. And if we're in Legacy Hall, I will even join Dr. Faulkner on stage to help moderate a live astronomy Q&A session. Buy tickets and find out more about the event before spots fill up!
Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
