Our next public viewing is scheduled for Thursday, November 15, from 6:00-8:00 PM. (In the event of bad weather, we will postpone to Thursday, November 22, from 7:00-8:00PM.)

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 (find information on finding Memorial Hall and where to park on campus here). 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.
