An Astronomy Evening for All

astronomyWe’re pleased to partner with North Durham Nature to bring you an evening of astronomy for all ages on Thursday, October 23rd.

Our guest, Steve LaForest, will tell us about the partial solar eclipse occurring that night along with other astronomical events. The eclipse takes place as the sun is setting, starting at approximately 5:30pm EDT and will last until around 6:30 pm. North Durham Nature Club members will demonstrate techniques for viewing the eclipse safely. The indoor presentation starts at 7 pm and light refreshments are provided, as well as a fun draw and a chance to join North Durham Nature. Following Steve’s talk, we go outside to view the night sky, so bring your binoculars and star charts if you have them.

Please register for this free program at the Information Desk or by calling 905-985-7686
