As another seaon comes to an end, we would like to say THANK YOU to our many volunteers for making this program possible. We hope to see everyone out again in 2019!

Would you like to see Saturn’s rings, or Apollo’s 11’s landing spot on the moon? Do the ideas of Star Nurseries, Planetary Nebula and Coloured Stars intrigue you? Do you want to know how to distinguish stars from the planets? Join us and discover the wonder and mystery of our Peninsula’s dark skies by taking part in the Biosphere’s Bayside Astronomy Program.

Every Friday and Saturday at dusk in the summertime at the Open Air POD (Peninsula Observation Deck) just steps from the Lion’s Head Marina. Telescopes and Astronomers will be on hand, eager to share their knowledge (and the Sights) with you.

Please visit our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/baysideastronomy/, for updated scheduling and the theme of the week.

Sessions are offered in the summer at Miller Lake Campground on Monday nights and Summer House Campground on Wednesday nights. Additionally we’re at the Bruce Peninsula National Park’s Singing Sands every Sunday night.

We are so very pleased that astronomers Doug and Paula Cunningham are volunteering their time again to lead the program with Jake Batters, Program Coordinator. Due to the generosity of our volunteer astronomers, Scotia Private Client Group, a grant from Canada Summer Jobs and Ridgewood Capital Asset Management, the Biosphere Association is able to offer the program at no charge. A bonus for you is that amateur astronomers bring their own telescopes so that these scopes combined with the Biosphere’s three telescopes means few or short lineups!! We are looking forward to seeing you, your guests and families at dusk during our beautiful summer evenings here on the Bruce.
