Tues May 6 9pm – Riverwood Observing Night

Observe the Moon and planets through large telescopes

Come out and observe the universe at the Riverwood Conservancy! Join members of the Mississauga Centre of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada as they set up large telescopes to look at the Moon, planets and stars. Observing will take place on the green in front of Chappelle House. The event starts at dusk is free and open to everyone.

Large telescopes will be set up and pointed at the Moon, the planets Jupiter, Saturn and Mars and other objects beyond our solar system.

Look for meteors, artificial satellites and anything else in the skies over Mississauga.

Note: If the weather is cloudy, the observing will be delayed one day. Check this web site for GO/NO GO information on the afternoon of the 06th.

The weather looks good for tomorrow night. It might be a little cool so dress warmly. We should have great views of the Moon and three planets – Jupiter, Mars and my favourite – Saturn!
