Tonight's Star Party has been postponed until tomorow (Sunday) night at 7:30 pm due to a cloudy forecast tonight. Remember to dress warmly. We will mostly be standing in an open field staring at the beautiful crisp night sky with our bare eyes and also with the help of a telescope. Dress in layers - including a scarf to help cover your face, gloves/mitts to cover your fingers and of course a toque of hat to keep your head and ears warm! The sky at night is so beautiful! Meet at the Nature Centre. Photo by Andrew Yee
