LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - The University of Nebraska-Lincoln will host a public viewing of a lunar eclipse at the Behlen Observatory near Mead.

The event is scheduled for Sunday from 8 to 11 p.m.

The evening will feature the last eclipse in a series of four lunar eclipses over the past two years, known as a tetrad.

Shawn Langan, the lab manager with the Department of Physics and Astronomy, says tetrads have happened roughly even 10 years this century, but there were none between 1600 and 1900.
