Lunar eclipse – Event Page
CAIRO – 29 July 2017:More amazing than at first thought, watching the lunar eclipse right on top of a mountain will not only show you the brightness of the moon with its silver glow, but also the stars getting dimmer or clearer as the eclipse takes place.
Astrotrips, an astrology group in Egypt, is planning a trip on August 7 to Alqatameya observatory, almost an hour from midtown Cairo for cost LE 350 ($19.55).
The eclipse is five hours long. So if you are not planning to join a trip at least watch out for it from the nearest place to you.
