Children, beginners and expert astronomers are invited to a free night of star gazing at the Trottier Observatory at SFU.  

Volunteers will help you discover the many wondrous celestial objects that can be seen by the naked eye including; our cratered Moon, distant stars of beautiful colours, constellations that tell of ancient lore, and planets in our solar system that hold important lessons for life on Earth, and elsewhere in the cosmos.

We will use our telescopes to treat you to superb views of the Moon, planets, distant star clusters, nebulae, and galaxies. 

If you have your own binoculars or a telescope, bring it with you. We’ll help you learn about your equipment and show you around the night sky. If you’re an experienced astronomer, share your knowledge and passion for astronomy with budding astronomers.
