Celebrating the May 2022 Total Lunar Eclipse in Rochester

Rochester had a stunning view of the Lunar Eclipse last night!Β 

At the RMSC, we celebrated with two live concerts of Vanishing Sun in the Strasenburgh Planetarium followed by a special showing of The Sky Tonight at 9 pm featuring the lunar eclipse. We captured this image a few minutes before the first contact took place.

The RIT Observatory held an open house from 10 p.m. to 12:30 a.m that was open to the public for everyone to celebrate together.


Here are some of our favorite local photos from social media:
