A celestial trifecta will happen early Wednesday morning. For the first time in 150 years, a blue, blood, super moon and eclipse can be seen in America. Susan Cook is the Chief of Interpretation and Resource Management at the Homestead National Monument in Beatrice says they are ready to welcome those who want to experience this rare event.
Cook says, “The Heritage Center has huge windows that face directly west. We have two options. You can stand in front of the big windows and watch it or you can stand out on our back patio. We will have some heaters out there to make it more comfortable and we have three telescopes so people can take turns looking closer and deeper into it as the partial is happening.”
Cook says this is something you may not want to miss. Like the solar eclipse last August, everything had to click for this event to happen. She says this is the end of a string of super moons so adding an eclipse is grand finale.
The Heritage Center will be open until 7 p.m. tonight and reopen on Wednesday, January 31st at 5 a.m.
