Event description
Join us for an evening of watching the satellites, stars and constellations at the Leighton Art Centre!

About this event

Experience the Leighton Art Centre like never before - while gazing up into the beautiful night sky! Start your night sky journey by building your own Star Map and Star Map Finder (Planisphere). Then head into the night, guided by your flashlights and by our resident biologist and naturalist Jim Critchley, to the Echo Hill lookout point on the Leighton Centre property. Use your newly made Star Map to recognize and identify the stars, constellations and zodiac signs that light up the foothills at night.

The Spring Sky is a great time to view the Moon! We will also look for visible planets, passing satellites, and the spring constellations! We might even hear the coyotes howl!

Audience: Open to anyone with an interest in learning about the night sky! Great for families with kids ages 10 and up. Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Weather: This is an outdoor evening workshop, please make sure you dress appropriately for the cool night ait. Extremely poor weather may result in cancellation. For our cancellation & refund policy, please see below.

Supplies: Please bring a water bottle, warm clothes, sturdy shoes and a flashlight. Walking poles may be a good addition. We suggest you bring your camera and binoculars too. A portable lawn chair is an asset!
