Here is a unique opportunity hosted by UVic's Dr. Karun Thanjavur, Senior Lab Instructor, and his student volunteers--for families to explore their astronomy questions through fun activities, including observing (weather permitting!) with UVic's powerful telescope. The event occurs cloudy or clear with family-oriented activities, including a presentation about the role of a putative "Planet B" in our future.
There is a limited number of spaces in the observatory, so it is imperative that if you are coming you RSVP. You may be contacted at a date close to the event to confirm. Please understand that by confirming your space, it will be held for you, (potentially prohibiting someone else from attending). If you find you are unable to attend, we ask that you let us know to open that space for someone else.
Dress warmly: Observatory is at night time temperatures. Volunteers in the lobby will greet and direct participants.
