Astronomy Day 2021
International Astronomy Day is a way for astronomy enthusiasts and professionals to share their knowledge and love of outer space with the general public. It is also a way for everyone interested in space to explore their passion and increase their knowledge.
Unfortunately due to COVID restrictions RASC Winnipeg Centre will be doing no outreach during this Astronomy Day but we encourage you to to attend the Manitoba Museum Manitoba Skies event. From the Planetarium:
This year, International Astronomy Day coincides with Manitoba Week celebrations! We’ll be doing a live telescope viewing of the Moon and planets beginning at 7 pm Central Time on Saturday, May 15, 2021. The early part of the show at 7 pm will focus on the Moon, while the second part (beginning around 9 pm) will also feature the sunset and the planets Mercury, Venus, and Mars. I’ll be on hand for live Q&A. You can register for the Zoom webinar here, or watch us live on the Manitoba Museum’s Facebook or YouTube channel.
