Planet-gazing with the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada

Back Campus Fields, University of Toronto
Hoskin Ave. at Tower Rd.

September 15, 2018

7:30pm - 10:30pm

Come see the planets as you’ve never seen them before! On September 15, we’ll celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada, with telescopes, planets, and prizes. Starting at 7:30 p.m., we’ll have telescopes set up to view Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, and their moons. This is a rare opportunity to get telescopic views of three planets all in one night. See the moons of Jupiter as Galileo first saw them more than four hundred years ago. As a bonus, we’ve chosen September 15 because, on that night, you’ll also be able to see craters and mountains on the Moon in stunning detail.

Make sure to arrive before 8:30 p.m. if you want to catch Jupiter and it moons. Mars, Saturn, and the Moon will be visible until the conclusion of the event.
