March Public Viewing – CANCELLED

UPDATE (9:18 am, Mar. 21): Clouds are forecast to move in this evening just when our viewing is scheduled, so we will have to cancel this month’s event.

We’ll be scheduling an April viewing (probably later in the month after the university examination period is finished) and we’ll post the date and time when it’s decided.


Our next public viewing is tentatively scheduled for Thursday, March 21, from 8:30-10:00PM. (If there are many storm-related closures of UPEI on Thursdays, this date may have to be shifted to accommodate the teaching of an evening laboratory class.)

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).

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.
