On the 31 January a once in a 150 year event is taking place in our solar system. Good Heavens has ring side seats.

On location at the XSPOT our telescopes will be at the ready. Our dark skies make this the ideal place to watch the total lunar eclipse. And while we're at it, we'll be checking out Jupiter and Saturn in the early morning sky.

The moon will be a once in a blue moon supermoon.

This night will be consisting of a Dark Sky Sanctuary on screen information session, we will keep an eye on the moon going through the different eclipse phases and while that is happening, we will give you a guided tour through the constellations, a closer look at our brightest stars and at some deep sky objects.

There will be time for quiet contemplation, taking photos, chats with other luna fanatics and some midnight snacks as well.
