Celebrate Astronomy Day At The Aviation Museum This Weekend

This Saturday April 21st marks International Astronomy Day around the world. Shopping malls, museums and libraries will play host to various astronomy clubs and groups. They will be setting up display tables, telescopes and possibly inflatable planetariums to celebrate the oldest of the allied sciences. This also allows for people to ask the many questions about the night sky. This is a great opportunity to look at the Sun (safely) the Moon and Venus by day through a telescope and attend public star parties at night starting at dusk (weather permitting). The Ottawa Centre will be setting up at the Canada Aviation and Space Museum from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. You can access the indoor display with the price of museum admission. The outdoor events are free.
