UPDATE (8:50PM Nov 30): Clouds have moved in earlier than expected this evening, so conditions are getting poor for viewing. We will have to shut the viewing down early at 9PM.
UPDATE (7:05PM Nov 15): With cloudy weather predicted for tomorrow (November 16), we will postpone our public telescope viewing until the cloud-date of Thursday, November 30 from 8:00-9:30PM. Should the weather not cooperate for that date, this post will be updated.
Our next public viewing is scheduled for Thursday, November 16 from 8:00-9:30PM. Our back-up date (in the event of cloudy weather) is Thursday, November 30 from 8:00-9:30PM.
Our observatory is on the rooftop of UPEI’s Memorial Hall, but we ask that you come first to room 417 to wait for your turn to go up to the telescope. Volunteers from local astronomy groups and UPEI Physics will be available to answer any astronomy questions for you while you wait.
It is necessary to climb a flight of stairs to reach the telescope, but the elevator can be taken up to the 4th floor waiting room.
In the evening hours, campus parking lots are free, with parking lots B and C being the nearest lots to Memorial Hall.
If the weather is cloudy and we cannot view the sky, the event will be postponed. This post will be updated in the event of cancellation or postponement.
