Astronomy Day – Saturday, April 24

This Saturday (April 24th) is International Astronomy Day, a day when astronomers around the world set up their telescopes in public places to show people the universe. This year, the Winnipeg Centre of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada and Planetarium staff will be setting up telescopes at the duck pond at Assiniboine Park on Saturday night as soon as it gets dark. NOTE: If it’s cloudy the event is cancelled – but if you can see the moon through the clouds, it’s on. I’ll post an update here and at on the Planetarium Star Line at (204) 988-0605 around 4PM on Saturday with a weather update.
