Event description

Description

Night Sky Wonders with Don Hladiuk

Wednesday, April 11th from 7-9pm

Bow Valley Ranch Visitor Centre indoor theatre

(Take Bow Bottom Trail south until you enter Fish Creek Provincial Park; turn right into the Bow Valley Ranch parking lot and park near the red barn. Follow the walking path west to the Visitor Centre.)


Do you ever look up at the night sky and wonder about what it is that you see? Join the Friends of Fish Creek to learn about what's happening in the night sky and how to find some easily identifiable objects observeable from within the City limits. Presenter Don Hladiuk will start the evening with an indoor presentation to provide some astronomy basics, then we'll head outside (weather permitting) for a look at the night sky in all it's wonder!

$15 per person, children 12 and under are free!

**Please note that part of this session will be outdoors; please be sure to dress as if it is 10 degrees colder than the actual temperature, as there will be little walking or movement to keep you warm. If the weather is too cool or sky conditions are foggy/cloudy, the entire program will take place indoors.**


Don Hladiuk has been looking up at the stars since he was a little boy. He is best know as the Starman on the CBC EyeOpener for the last 33 years and was also involved in developing the Alberta Parks "Star Night" event almost 20 years ago. For his 40 years of community service, asteroid 73704 was named asteroid “Hladiuk”. You can follow Don on Twitter and Instagram at: astrogeo
