The Lincoln Parks and Recreation Department has invited the public to view the upcoming lunar eclipse at the Hyde Memorial Observatory. The free event will run from 8:30 p.m. until midnight Sunday.

"Eclipse viewing will be especially good in Lincoln because it will be visible from beginning to end during convenient viewing hours," said Lee Thomas, an observatory volunteer. That's assuming the weather cooperates, with no cloud cover.

He added that those strong viewing conditions for a lunar eclipse will likely not occur again until 2022.
