About Us

The Hume Cronyn Memorial Observatory, located on the campus of Western University, was inaugurated on October 25, 1940 and has since been the hub for astronomical outreach activities for the greater London community. We organize public and private events where we engage in stargazing (weather permitting) through our flagship 10 inch refractor and other telescopes and deliver presentations and demonstrations about astronomical topics of interest, while proudly showcasing our historical heritage.

The Observatory was built in the 1940s, and now showcases our cultural and historical heritage.

We run various types of outreach events throughout the year. Find out more about them here!
