May 15, 2021 is International Astronomy Day, a time when amateur and professional astronomers around the world bring the universe to the general public. To celebrate, we will be hosting virtual telescope views of the Moon and planets beginning at 7 pm.

If the sky is cloudy, a live feed from another telescope in Canada will be shown with local commentary.
