The Observatory on York’s Keele campus will host a rotating tour of their new domes and telescope with a live viewing if the sky is clear, or they will feature a selection of archival images if the sky is cloudy. The renowned and recently upgraded Observatory houses two large telescopes equipped with precision electronic cameras. The larger telescope was added in 2019 and reaches 1 metre in diameter, one of the largest in Canada.
Organized by Dr. Eliana Hyde
