The Dominion Radio Astrophysical Observatory invites you to join us for a night of viewing the sky for the Perseids Meteor Shower.
Turn down the lights, turn off your electronics and disconnect. Join us for an evening of beauty, nature and science as we view the meteor shower on the darkened grounds of Canada’s leading Radio Astronomy site.

Located at 717 White Lake Road, the Dominion Radio Astrophysical Observatory is a naturally occurring radio silent site. Please power OFF all electronics (airplane mode is not sufficient) before entering the site.

We will be hosting talks and meteor shower viewing from 7:00pm-11:00pm on Saturday, August 10, 2024.

Talks will run at 8:00pm and 9:00pm.

We look forward to hosting you!
