Joe's Garage, the Loring Park eatery and sometimes-theater, will host a free lunar eclipse viewing party Wednesday, Oct. 27, 8-11 p.m.

This lunar eclipse will be the last one of 2004. The partial eclipse begins at 9:21 p.m., and NASA predicts the total eclipse will begin around 10:22 p.m. and last until a few minutes before midnight.

The event is co-sponsored by the Minnesota Planetarium Society (MPS) and MCTC. Parke W. Kunkle, president of MPS, said last year's event drew several hundred people, as well as a television crew.
