Details

Due to the forecast or mixed rain and snow for tomorrow night, SFU has cancelled Starry Nights. A week of super clear nights was just Mother Nature teasing us. She can be as mean as a junk yard dog.

NOTE: While this event is free and open to the public, RSVP'ing for this event does not guarantee that you will be able to enter the observatory which will be in a "First Come, First Served" basis. We encourage you to observe with the volunteers on the plaza, talk, and ask questions from many of them who love the night sky.

More information, including an SFU campus map with locations of the observatory, the nearest public (pay) parking, and bus stop, along with our very important observatory house rules and starry-night etiquette, can be found here: https://www.sfu.ca/science/trottierobservatory/starrynights/important-information-on-starry-nights-events.html

RASC thanks SFU and Dr. Howard Trottier who host this event for access to the grounds and observatory. If you do come out, please be sure to thank our volunteers, and to extend to them your utmost patience and understanding.
