The Stargazers' Group of Mississauga is pleased to be actively promoting the International Year of Astronomy 2009 as declared by the United Nations, celebrating 400 years since Galileo turned his telescope to the heavens.
Note: We would like to thank the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada (http://www.rasc.ca/) for their generous support by providing material to promote the International Year of Astronomy.
100 Hours of Astronomy was a global astronomy event from 2 to 5 April when you can discover the Universe with the rest of the world! A project of the International Year of Astronomy, there were free public activities happening all around the world. The website of the 100 Hours of Astronomy is http://www.100hoursofastronomy.org/
Tom, Paul and Mike showed Saturn and the Moon to about 60 people. It was a bit cloudy but the skies cleared enough for us to start off the 100 Hours of Astronomy right. Thanks to everyone who stopped to take a look. Send us an email or leave a guest signature.
