The Tellus Science Museum in Cartersville will be open from 1 a.m. to 5:30 a.m. Tuesday, as a total lunar eclipse is expected to be visible in the United States.
Officials say the museum's observatory will be open for moon viewing, along with smaller telescopes on the museum grounds. Inside, visitors can learn more about eclipses in the Planetarium.
Officials say that if weather conditions prohibit moon viewing in northwest Georgia, the museum is prepared to tune into other observatories in North America or South America and broadcast images of the moon from their observatory.
The museum is about 40 miles northwest of Atlanta along Interstate 75.
