Description
Open House is run every Saturday evening during the months of June, July, and August. No reservations needed here; come and go as you please. Start time is 20:30 (8:30 p.m.). Closing time is 23:00 (11:00 p.m.). This is a time to view the skies through the telescope and to pose your favorite questions to the astronomer hosting the evening. Objects viewed vary with the season, but might include the Moon, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, binary stars, star clusters, planetary nebulae, or galaxies. There is nothing like seeing these things with your own eyes!

In the event of cloudy skies, the observatory will still be open for slides and a look at the telescopes, and closing time might be earlier.
We often have members of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada on hand with their portable telescopes set up on our front lawn. So if you're interested in doing some astronomy as a hobby, these are the people to talk to.

Our research observatory is north of London, but not generally open for visitors.
