Luna Eclipse, Night Tour and Burgers

Tour Time: Monday 30th November 6pm

Join us for the last Penumbral Lunar Eclipse for 2020 in the skies over the Capricorn Caves, with Dinner and a special night tour of the Caves.

What is Penumbral Lunar Eclipse? It is when the moon passes through the outer shadow of the earth (the Penumbral) and is partially dimmed (unlike a full Numbral lunar eclipse). It is believed the darker sky above Capricorn Caves – with its lack of light bleed from Rockhampton should enhance the visibility of the eclipse at its maximum effect, around 7:42pm.

The booking includes dinner and a cold drink, a tour of the Cathedral Cave and the opportunity to witness this lunar eclipse in the darkness of our 80 acre property. A not to be missed event!

*Spend 45 minutes exploring our largest caves as our knowledgeable guides share stories and history with you*

Duration
45 Minutes

**Membership Rules** – Memberships allow for unlimited re-entry until March 31st. They are only valid on Cathedral Cave tours, this exempts our Summer Solstice cave tour and our Night tours.
