Come out and look at the stars in the library civic square! A 12 inch telescope will be set up outside the library to observe planets, clusters and double stars. We may see our galactic neighbour, the Andromeda Galaxy which is 2.5 million light years away. It is also a peak time for the annual Geminids meteor shower
The event will begin in the program room with an introduction to viewing the stars. We will then go outside to the library grounds to observe. If the weather does not cooperate, the whole program will be indoors, where there will be a powerpoint presentation. Presenter John Reid is a librarian and astronomer enthusiast.
Please dress warmly, bring your binoculars, if you have them, and hope for a clear night.
The program is free but space is limited to accomodate outside viewing. Please register online or by phoning the Bob Prittie Metrotown Branch at 604-436-5400. Each family member must register separately.
