Launching Western into Space

March 18, 2023 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm EDT


You are cordially invited to our next public night!

Join us on March 18th, 8:00 to 10:00 pm, to meet a team of brilliant students at Western University! Hear how they designed and built their own miniature satellite (called Ukpik-1), that they will launch into space very soon. This is your opportunity to hear about their experience building it, and about what their satellite will be measuring once in orbit.

As always, you will have your chance to ask questions, participate in Astronomy demonstrations and learn about the history of the Observatory. If weather permits, we will set up telescopes.


No registration is required, you can come and go as you please.
