Crowd Gathers on Old Court Road to View Super Moon Lunar Eclipse

On September 27, 2015, the moon passed through the shadow of the Earth during a perigee full moon (also known as a super moon). Sunday’s eclipse was a cosmic display that we won’t see again until 2033. A crowd of about 150 people joined Upper School Science teacher Sean Lally on the hill above Tompkins Field to view the eclipse. While cloud cover made viewing conditions less than ideal in our region, the optimistic students, parents, and faculty members on hand were treated to several glimpses (greeted by cheers!) of the eclipse in progress, along with s’mores and apple cider. Thanks to Sean and Upper School astronomy students for sharing their know-how, their telescopes, and their enthusiasm with the community!
