International Astronomy Day 2021

RASC Montreal & Explore Alliance 

On Saturday, May 15th, beginning at 7:00pm EDT (23:00 UTC) the RASC Montreal Centre will be co-hosting the 45th Global Star Party by the Explore Alliance. These Global Star Parties have been reaching audiences in the thousands, sharing our wonder of the Night Sky with enthusiasts of all ages. Over a dozen Montreal Centre members will share their experiences with the world during this year's International Astronomy Day event! The night's program will be divided into three parts: with Observing Stories leading off the event, followed by Outreach Stories and Imaging Stories with a short break between each Part. The night will end with an after-party where the audience can also join in to share their Astronomy stories.

The event will be simulcast on all the Explore Alliance Platforms and on the RASC Montreal Centre YouTube Channel.
