The Sky Tonight
8:30 pm at Chignecto South
Come explore the night sky with us! Fundy National Park has some of the darkest and star-filled skies around. This amazing view is now protected by our status as a dark-sky preserve. You may be able to glimpse Saturn’s rings, view nebulae and star clusters light-years away and experience star-hopping through the Milky Way, all with the aid of our giant, 30 cm diameter, motor-tracking telescope (90 min)
