Millennium Square Stargazing Night (NO GO for Saturday)

Millennium Square
Friday, October 12, 2018 - 6:00pm to Saturday, October 13, 2018 - 11:00pm

Everyone is invited to join us and Durham Skies on October 12 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, Saturn and its rings, and rosy 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 6:00 pm with solar-filtered telescopes providing views of sunspots and prominences.

Dress warmly as evenings in October can be chilly down by the lake. Before heading down to the Square, please check our website on October 12 for a GO/NO-GO decision based on the weather.
