The UVic Observatory Open House program for the fall term will resume in-person starting September 21, 2022. Given the continued Covid restrictions, we have been advised to follow appropriate health guidelines, which are listed below. Each week, we will have discussions of astronomy headlines, a Q&A session and viewing through the 0.2m Celestron and the 0.8m DFM telescopes, if sky conditions permit .

 

PLEASE NOTE: There will not be an Open House on Wednesday, November 9, 2022 as it the University's Fall Reading Break.


Topic: Observatory Open House
Time: Wednesday 7:30 to 9:30 PM Pacific Time (US and Canada). Every week on Wednesdays starting on September 21st, 2022.
