Bill Burnyeat, Program Manager of Canadian Planetariums, is here to answer your questions and talk about astronomy and tell you where to aim your telescope.
The final Big Sky event of the summer is the annual Perseid meteor shower. This is on August 12 to 13 and will be favourable this year since strong moonlight, which hides the shooting stars, will be absent. Now is the time to plan to go out at night to enjoy the spectacle above. With star watches, conjunctions and meteors under their belts, everyone who attends will be well introduced to becoming a backyard astronomer. Suitable for all ages.
