Lockhart Planetarium Open House
👉 February 22, 7:00 PM – 8:00 PM
👉 University of Manitoba, 210 Dysart Rd, Room 394
There are never any clouds indoors! Come for an evening of free, guided stargazing with us.
We will give a guided tour of the night sky under the dome of the Planetarium. We’ll show you what can be seen from Winnipeg, that night. We’ll tell you the tales of constellation myths, point out which planets can be seen, and the exciting research being done in Astronomy and Astrophysics. We’ll have experts tell you about the exciting research they are doing here in the Department of Physics and Astronomy. No astronomy knowledge of experience necessary, come with your curiosity and your questions to this family-friendly event. Topics will change month to month, as does the sky, so there will always be something new.
