What's better than viewing the night sky the way it's meant to be seen? Seeing it with dozens of other stargazers!

The Lennox & Addington Dark Sky Viewing Area hosts monthly events from May through September. Events take place on weekends near a new moon. Each start at dusk and last about 90 minutes. Weather permitting, you'll get a laser-guided tour of the night sky and have a chance to take a look through a telescope. These events are a great way for novice stargazers to get acquainted with the night sky. 

Our organized public viewing events have wrapped up for the 2017 season, but that doesn't mean that the fun is over. If it's a clear night, moonless night, there's a good chance that there will be a gathering of novice stargazers and amateur astronomers and astrophotographers at the DSVA.

Check out the helpful links on our Plan Your Visit page that you can choose the perfect night to view the night sky the way it was meant to be seen.
