Planet Party

Even at home, you’re never alone – especially when the team at U of T Astronomy is involved!

On Saturday, September 12, the Dunlap Institute and the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada (www.rasc.ca) are bringing you the very first variety show edition of our popular Planet Party!

Starting at 8pm ET, we’ll invite you to stargaze with our all-star team of astronomers.

We’ll show you how to find constellations and planets in the night sky – right alongside live-streamed views from telescopes located across the country.You can learn the constellations of both local Indigenous cultures and the Western ones.

Our entertaining experts will share the latest news about how Canada will help explore Mars, and break down what’s going on with the monster black hole at the centre of our galaxy.

Take your device outside and follow along in the real sky, or stay on your couch and let us show you the sights. Even if you just feel like playing a game to win a super space prize – we’ve got a little bit of everything for you.

We can’t wait to celebrate astronomy with you all!
