Millennium Square Stargazing Night

Millennium Square
Saturday, March 24, 2018 -
6:00pm to 11:00pm

Everyone is invited to join us and Durham Skies on Saturday, March 24 for stargazing at the edge of Lake Ontario. Take a free look through different kinds of telescopes (including solar-filtered scopes) to get close-up looks at sunspots, craters on the Moon, the winter constellations setting in the west chased by the stars of spring rising in the east. 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 expert advice on how to use it better.

Everything gets underway at 6:00pm with solar-filtered telescopes providing views of sunspots and prominences.

Dress warmly as the evenings are chilly down by the lake this time of year. Please check our website on March 24 for a GO/NO-GO decision based on the weather before heading down to the Square.
