Canada-Wide Star Party at Irving Nature Park

September 14 @ 7:30 pm - 11:00 pm

Join local members and guests of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada for the second annual Canada-Wide Star Party. Mars, Jupiter, Saturn and the Moon will be the focus targets as twilight fades to darkness. Later we will visit the star clusters and nebulae of the Milky Way, the Andromeda Galaxy and its neighbours, the ever-popular ET cluster, and other gems of the night sky.

IMPORTANT:

  • Please park in the lower lot by the Information Kiosk.
  • For overflow and people with mobility issues please use the lot near the Squirrel BBQ.

The astronomers park in the upper section above the kiosk where they will set up their equipment.

Then meet at the upper parking lot (above Kiosk) near Squirrel BBQ.

Don’t forget to bring a mug for hot chocolate, and bring an extra layer or two as the park can get chilly at this time of night. If it is cloudy we will try again on Saturday, September 15.

All events are provided free of charge by J.D. Irving, Limited. If you have any questions please contact us at the park at 653-7367, naturepark@jdirving.com or through Facebook.
