Florida SouthWestern State College Observatory Offers Glimpse at Eclipse

Oct 2, 2014

Florida SouthWestern State College (FSW) invites the public to visit The Moore Observatory on the Charlotte Campus of FSW to view the eclipse of the moon.  This event will take place on October 8, and guests can participate in the viewing from 4:30am to 8:00am.  This event is free, and no registration is needed to attend.   

“During the eclipse, the full moon will move into the shadow of the Earth,” said Dave Hanson, Coordinator for The Moore Observatory at FSW.  “We enjoy being able to share the observatory with our community, and look forward to inviting the public to our regular openings that will take place each month from now until May.”

Florida SouthWestern State College is Southwest Florida’s largest and one of the most affordable institutions of higher education. Annually serving more than 22,000 students globally, FSW offers a variety of nationally-ranked, career-focused academic programs with two- and four-year degrees, and professional certifications.
