DOMINION ASTROPHYSICAL OBSERVATORY GUIDED TOUR — May 24th (10:30 am. – 12:00 pm).
The Dominion Astrophysical Observatory has been designated a national historic site because of its important role in establishing Canada’s international scientific reputation in astronomy. Over the decades, these telescopes have contributed significantly to our understanding of the rotation, size and mass of the Milky Way, and of the rarefied interstellar medium between the stars. Recent projects include orbital determination of comets and asteroids, spectroscopy of magnetic stars, and ongoing studies of distant quasars and galaxies.
There will be a cost of $10.00 for this tour. Lunch to be announced.
