Published November 27, 2023 at 4:35 pm

If you’re a fan of gazing at the stars and would like to meet some people with a similar interest, head to Bronte Heritage Park in Oakville tomorrow evening.

And you don’t even have to bring your own telescope as several will be set up for members of the public to take a peak at the heavens.

The event was postponed from Monday to Tuesday due to the harsh weather and could still be delayed from Nov. 28 if things don’t clear up.

However, assuming the weather holds, the event will be held from 6:30 to 10:30 p.m.

Here are some tips from the organizers:

  • Astronomy is for everyone and all are welcome.
  • Dress for 10 degrees below the expected temperature minimum.
  • Telescopes will be set up for the public and public viewing.
  • Before using a telescope, make sure someone is supervising it to make sure it is on target. Only touch or operate a telescope with permission.
  • There is no electricity supplied at this time. Please bring a portable power station or supply for your telescope if needed
  • Noise levels should be minimal as this is a public space near residences
  • Park in designated parking spaces only. Do not park in the Centriller Square or Farm Boy parking lots as towing occurs in these parking areas
