This autumn, when evening skies are getting darker, join us at the UAlberta Observatory for a stargazing tour that’s out of this world! Our host, Dr. Sharon Morsink of the Department of Physics, will be opening the Observatory for us to enjoy views of the waxing crescent Moon, the planet Mars and the real-life lord of the rings – the planet Saturn, and other celestial delights. We’ll begin with a short presentation about the Observatory and then tour the heavens through the state-of-the art telescopes.
This is a free event, with limited capacity; please RSVP via this EventBrite link.
