Bayside Astronomy

Free! Come see Saturn’s rings, Jupiter’s moons and the Great Red Spot!

Have you ever wondered “What is that bright object in the western sky at sunset?” Have you ever been curious about that band of cloudy white light that stretches across the summer night sky. Would you like to figure out where you are on the earth and what time it is just based on the stars? Do you like time travel? If so, you need to visit Bayside Astronomy!

Bayside Astronomy is a free program that allows members of the public to learn about the importance and beauty of our dark skies and to view and learn about the constellations, planets, the moon, and other deep sky objects LIVE through telescopes. Offered by the Bruce Peninsula Biosphere Association and the Municipality of Northern Bruce, this FREE program begins with a short star talk at dusk, followed by viewing of the night sky through volunteer telescopes. 

Be wowed by viewing the Andromeda Galaxy over 2.5 million light years away in the past. Wonder what life would be like in the middle of 300,000 stars in the Globular Cluster M13!

Bayside happens every Friday and Saturday night from Canada Day to Labour Day at the marina in Lions Head at sunset. It then goes remote to Singing Sands in BP National Park on Sunday, to Miller’s Family Camp on Monday, and Summer House Park on Wednesday.

Did we mention it’s free? Come visit us at Bayside and check out our Facebook page facebook.com/baysideastronomy/ for any cancellations due to weather. Be star struck!
