Queen’s Observatory Open House

Event Date

The next Queen’s Observatory Open House will be on the internationally recognized Dark Matter Day happening this Saturday November 4th at 7:00pm in Stirling Hall at Queen's University!

 The event is co-hosted by the McDonald Institute, Queen's University and the Queen's Physics Department. We’ll have a fascinating talk by Professor Aaron Vincent titled ''The Dark Side of the Sun" about using the sun as a giant dark matter detector.  

The presentation will be followed by various activities and demonstrations, including tours of the Queen’s Observatory, the McDonald Institute and viewing nearby and deep-sky celestial objects with our telescopes (weather permitting). Feel free to dress up, as we’ll also have candy, a costume contest, and free give-aways!

We hope to see you there! See event details: https://mcdonaldinstitute.ca/events/dark-side-of-the-sun/
