The stars are ready for viewing

The Allan Brooks Nature Centre and the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada welcome the public to astronomy night Oct. 3

Look up on the hill and into the stars.

Allan Brooks Nature Centre (ABNC) and the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada will be holding an astronomy night on Saturday, from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. View deep-sky objects or see the moon up close. Bring your own telescope/binoculars or use one available on site.

Allan Brooks Nature Centre is located south on Commonage Road just past the army camp. Further information is available online at www.abnc.ca, like the ABNC on Facebook or call 250-260-4227. Admission is by donation.

“This is a very popular event and is held regularly weather permitting,” said Janice Buick, event and volunteer coordinator for the ABNC. “Come early to get the best viewing spot, parking is available on site.”

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