On Saturday July 29, we’re holding the first National Star Party! Astronomy clubs across the country are holding a star party on the same night to celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary since Confederation.

Members of the Mississauga Centre of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada will be setting up telescopes to show members of the public spectacular views of the Universe. Observing will take place on the green in front of Chappelle House. The event starts at dusk is free and open to everyone. Jupiter, Saturn and the Moon should be visible, along with perhaps a nebula or two! Get some good shots of the Apollo moon landing sites with your cellphone cameras! We should get a good look at some colourful double stars.
