DDO calendar

The David Dunlap Observatory is open and actively serving the public. The RASC, Toronto Centre (along with other partners) regularly runs programmes including a speakers series and family nights during the warmer months. The calendar below shows upcoming RASC, Toronto Centre events. Hyperlinks in day slots will connect to the Richmond Hill bookings web page.

People wishing to visit the DDO as guests, to bring family and friends, are encouraged to book well in advance as these popular nights sell out quickly. Note your preferred RASC event dates below then visit the Richmond Hill web site to purchase tickets.

Members interested in helping are asked to review this calendar to gain a good sense of all the things we do and where we need excellent support from enthusiastic volunteers.

Khaki, beige, and olive do not seem attract the insects. Cover up with loose, long sleeved shirts and pants. In the shoulder seasons, spring and fall, wear clothing for several degrees cooler.
