Here are some suggestions to get you started on an Astronomy Project! Try observing with binoculars at night:

  • Check out the moon and planet rising and setting times in your area: https://www.timeanddate.com/astronomy/night/canada/kingston
  • Identify the planets visible each night. Note that some planets appear to come closely together (conjunction) at certain times (eg. Venus and Jupiter in January).
  • Look for constellations you might know, and identify the brighter stars, using the internet or a star chart to assist you. Well-known examples are Ursa Major and Minor,Cassiopiea, Taurus and Orion.
