UNB ASTRONOMY NIGHTS:  October 11, 8:00-9:00 pm

Location: Queen Square Park

Join us for a tour of the night sky (Weather Permitting). Some of the things we'll be observing through our portable telescopes are Jupiter, Saturn, the Great Cluster in Hercules and the moon. We'll also show you how to spot some of the season's best-known constellations as we do some naked-eye observing. We will have portable telescopes set up for observing the night sky, feel free to drop by anytime. You can let us know you are coming by emailing physics@unb.ca
