For those of you who are taking the bus, 196A and 196B from Downsview station will directly bring you to Harry W. Arthurs commons square. For those who are driving, you can enter York university from Steels ave , west of Keele though Founders Rd and then take a  left on Ian McDonald Blvd which will bring you to a parking building right behind Yorklanes mall (take a right at Vanier lane). Enter York lanes mall and go the Bank of Montreal. We will all be standing there.

We will get together at 7:15 pm and we will then walk to the observatory.  Our appointment at the observatory is from 8-9:30 pm. We could not find a French guide for the tour but if needed some of us can help in French translation. After the visit we can go back to Yorklanes mall new sports-bar, Shoppsy's, to chat in French . The attendance is limited to 25 visitors. Please see the following link for the website of the observatory:

    Galya, right behind Yorklanes mall there is a parking lot. It is #72 in this map and entrance is through Vanier lane.

    Due to construction at York, best is to enter York University from Steeles Ave, west of Keele, through Founders Rd, turn left on Ian McDonald Blvd, and then right on Vanier lane to enter the parking lot.

    • Pierre G.

      Bienvenue Mo. On est sûr que ce ne sera pas la dernière.

      May 4, 2014

  • Robert M.

    Bonsoir. I have noticed that there are two people on the waiting list. Unless some of the other 40 visitors cancel, I don't advise the waiting list people to show up. The Observatory staff are expecting a maximum of 40 people for tomorrow because of space and time limitations. Maybe if this visit goes well, we will organize another visit and then those who could not make it can join us.

    A la prochaine

    Good idea Justin. Here is the map with letters

    http://maps.info.yorku.ca/files/2013/02/KEELE_Map_Colour.pdf

    Yorklanes is #24 and we are meeting at the bottom left corner of that building. The observatory is the little finger with a small circle on top left of #17. It is approximately 10 minute walk from #24.

    As for cell phone, unfortunately I have lost mine since a few days ago. I will ask one of the other organizers if they can provide it. However between 7:15 to 7:45 pm, I will be there for sure. You will recognize me from my picture.

  • Justin K.

    Robert, could you message your cell number to the group that is going for Monday night. A map of York campus would be good as well. What building letter?

    Bonjour. Monday's forecast is a mix of sun and cloud with no rain. Let us hope it stays that way!

    Thank you for increasing the number of visitors. That means I can join!

  • Robert M.

    Bonjour. Since I have increased the number of visitors from 25 to 40, our appointment at the observatory has been extended from 8-10 pm (before it was 8-9:30 pm). We will get together at Yorklanes Mall at 7:15 pm and will wait till 7:45 pm for everyone to show up. We will then proceed to the observatory. If anyone for any reason arrives late, when we have left for the observatory, he or she can wait for us in Shopsy's at Yorklanes mall till we return from the visit at 10:15 pm.

    A bientot

  • Robert M.

    Bonjour. So far we have about 38 people who have signed up for the visit. Initially I set the number of visitors to 25 but after consulting with observatory staff, I will increase it to 40. The observatory is rather small so if you see that the limit has reached, please don't sign up any more. The visitors will be divided into two groups of 20. One group will visit the telescope area and the other will listen to a lecture by a staff regarding astronomy. After 1/2 hour the two groups will switch.

    A bientot et nous esperon pour un bon temp.
