The public nights are first and foremost a time to view the skies through our telescopes and to pose your favorite questions to the astronomers hosting the evening. Objects viewed vary with the season, but might include the Moon, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, binary stars, star clusters, planetary nebulae, or galaxies. There is nothing like seeing these wonders with your own eyes!

In the event of cloudy skies, the observatory will still be open for the demos, historical displays, and a look at the telescopes, but there will be no observing and we may close earlier.
Members of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada are also on hand with their portable telescopes set up on the Observatory balcony and front lawn. If you’re interested in doing some astronomy as a hobby, these are the people to talk to.
There is no charge, and no reservations are necessary; come and go as you please throughout the evening. The University has free parking on the weekends.
