See the stars on Saturday

Look up on the hill and into the stars as the Allan Brooks Nature Centre (ABNC) and the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada hold an astronomy night Saturday.

From 8 p.m. to 11 p.m., visitors can view planets like mars, uranus, saturn, jupiter and deep-sky objects, or see the moon up close. Bring your own telescope or binoculars or use one available on site.

Admission is by donation. This is a very popular event and is held regularly, weather permitting. Come early to get the best viewing spot — parking is available on site.

The centre is located south on Commonage Road just past the army camp. For more information, see www.abnc.ca, call 250-260-4227 or like the ABNC on Facebook.

The ABNC is supported by its members, volunteers, donors, sponsors, partners, granting agencies and admission fees and relies heavily on community resources for its success in nature interpretation, habitat conservation and nature-based events.
