January 2020 Public Viewing – CANCELLED

UPDATE (2:30PM January 25): Due to unforeseen circumstances, the public viewing this evening is cancelled. We apologize for any inconvenience and disappointment to anyone who was planning to attend.


Our next public event will take place from 6:30-8:30 pm on Saturday, January 25 (weather permitting). Everyone is welcome to drop by to have a look through our telescope.

The meeting spot for this event is room 417 of Memorial Hall (get directions and parking information). Depending on how many people are attending, you may have to wait a bit for your turn to go up to the telescope.

To access the observatory, it is necessary to be able to climb a set of stairs over one storey in height.

The observatory is unheated, so you bring clothing that is warm enough to permit you to stand in outdoor temperatures for at least 20 minutes. (The waiting room is indoors and heated.)

If the sky is cloudy on the night of the event, the viewing may have to be cancelled. This post will be updated if there are any changes to the event status.
