The live stream will feature real-time images of the eclipsed Moon over southern Australia using an array of advanced telescopes in the Greater Adelaide area and beyond.

ASSA members will use the latest real-time telescope imaging technologies to ensure a unique and exciting experience for viewers. The evening will include short presentations about the Moon, interactive night sky activities, and a panel of experts to answer your questions throughout the evening.

Viewers can email questions ahead of the Lunar Eclipse event.

The Total Lunar Eclipse: Live Stream event is being presented by the ASSA in place of its regular Autumn Stockport Star Party, which together with other in-person public viewing nights, have being suspended in South Australia due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Funds raised from raffle ticket sales will be used by ASSA to buy equipment to enable safe non-contact in-person sharing of telescope views with the general public. The first of the new style in-person events is being planned for August 2021.
