Millennium Square Stargazing Night (GO for Saturday)
Everyone is invited to join us and Durham Skies on the evenings of both September 14th and 15th 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, Jupiter, Saturn and Mars! 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 on both days with solar-filtered telescopes providing views of sunspots and prominences.
Before heading down to the Square, please check our website for a GO/NO-GO decision based on the weather.
