Tsunami Spherecast - Planetarium Rotunda

March 27th is the 50th commemoration of the Great Alaska earthquake and tsunami. In remembrance of this event, NOAA is presenting a special "SphereCast" for people interested in tsunami science and impacts. The information will be presented using Science On a Sphere, a six-foot diameter globe that shows full-color animated satellite-based imagery of hundreds of data sets including weather, climate change, and tsunami data. The one-hour session will broadcast live from Honolulu, Hawaii starting at 10 a.m. HST.

Lunar Eclipse Viewing Event - 8:00 – 11:30 p.m.

Hawaii is in perfect position to view the total lunar eclipse that occurs on Monday evening April 14, 2014 (Hawai'i Standard Time). This visible period of this lunar eclipse runs for three and a half hours, from 7:58 p.m. to 11:33 p.m. HST. The most striking phase, the total lunar eclipse, will run from 9:06 to 10:24 p.m.; during that long total phase the moon will be entirely within the earth's dark shadow, and the moon will turn dark and quite possibly red.

During the partial phases, roughly the 70 minutes before and the 70 minutes after the total phase, a big chunk of the moon will be missing as the moon slides into/out of the earth's dark shadow.

Bishop Museum's grounds, Science Adventure Center, Planetarium and traveling exhibit hall open from 8:00 – 11:30 p.m. Admission: $8 general, $6 for youth 4-12, free for under 4 years of age, free for Museum members.
