Millennium Square Public Stargazing Series (GO for Friday)
Join us and our sponsor, Durham Skies, for an evening of free public stargazing along the north shore of Lake Ontario at Millennium Square. Observe the Moon, Jupiter at its best, Saturn, even Uranus and Neptune and stars through our telescopes! Check out astronomy literature at our information booth, and ask us questions to learn more about the stars and planets. You can bring your own telescope and we'd be happy to help you set it up and aim it at the Moon.
Everything gets underway at 6:00pm with solar-filtered telescopes providing views of sunspots and prominences.
Remember to dress for cold temperatures down by the lake. Wearing masks is recommended. Please use our hand disinfectant before touching material at our information booth.
Please note that we make our GO/NO-GO calls a few hours before an event but, if the weather worsens, we may have to cancel or wrap up earlier than planned. We'll try to post updates but please use your best judgment if you're planning to join us.
