NOVA is a six-week program. We are excited to offer a lineup of expert presenters who will introduce you to visual observing, the solar system, stars, deep sky objects, black holes, telescopes, cosmology, and so much more! 

The next NOVA course will be held at the Fairview Library from January 16 to February 27, 2017, from 6:15-8:15pm (six Mondays excluding February 20 due to the Family Day holiday). Classes will be 2 hours in length, with a 15-minute break in the middle. 

Fairview Library is located at 35 Fairview Mall Drive, Toronto. There is free parking at the library, and TTC subway access right to the Fairview Mall at Don Mills station. The library is immediately north of the mall. 

Spaces will be filled on a first-come first-served basis, and will be open for registration starting Monday, December 5, 2016 at 10:00am.

Go to the registration page.

During the course participants will be encouraged to pursue the RASC's Explore the Universe Observing Certificate to gain practical experience in locating and observing astronomical objects.

Class size is limited to approximately 50 participants. Recommended minimum age for participants is 12 years old. Children under 13 years old must be accompanied by an adult during each session.

We look forward to introducing and welcoming you to the wonderful world of astronomy and visual observing.
