Millennium Square Stargazing Night

Friday, September 29, 2017 -
6:00pm to 11:00pm

Everyone is invited to join us and Durham Skies on September 29 for stargazing at the edge of Lake Ontario. Take a free look through different kinds of telescopes to get close-up views of craters on the Moon and spectacular Saturn and its rings! Learn the names of the stars of autumn and the constellation patterns they form. Peer deep into space and try your hand at spotting faint star clusters and nebulae. You can even bring your own telescope along and we'll give you advice on how to use it better.

Everything gets underway at 6 PM but check our home page before heading out for a Go/No-Go call in case it's too cloudy to observe. (If we are clouded out, we will try the following evening, September 30.) Please remember to dress warmly as it can be chilly by the lake after sunset.

Who can attend: Everyone
Fee: Free
Registration: Not required
Location: Millennium Square beside Frenchman's Bay at the foot of Liverpool Road, Pickering
