Experience a Galileo Moment

January 11, 2009

2009 is the International Year of Astronomy and the University of Calgary’s Physics department’sRothney Astrophysical Observatory open house event on Saturday, January 10, 2009, 8:00pm to 11:00pm, with astronomer Dr. Phil Langill. We’re going to be able to see Calgary winter night sky through the lens of powerful telescopes with the added benefit of the ideal dark sky quality at the observatory. Apparently even without the telescope the moon is clearly visible these days since it will be the biggest and closest full moon of 2009.
