If you are in the Riverside area tomorrow night, you have a once in a lifetime opportunity to see a triple moon transit of Jupiter.
The Physics and Astronomy Department at UCR will have a free public telescope observation of a rare event on Friday 23 from 8:30 to 10 PM.
Three moons of Jupiter will cast their shadows onto the gaseous planet and eclipse themselves. This is the last time we will be able to see the phenomenon from Earth until the year 2032.
There will be special telescopes to see the event. Information at the event will be available in English, Spanish and Farsi.
