Star Party at the Ontario Science Centre

The Ontario Science Centre sometimes host interesting events after hours. Some of these events are free to everyone and you don't need to be a member to participate. One such free event was the Summer Star Party – From Galileo to the Moon that was hosted on Friday July 24. The event had an excellent presentation on the landing of Apollo 11 by Space Historian Randy Attwood with video and voice recording of the actual landing. For people like me (and my kids), this was like an eye opener to the Apollo Missions. Other activities including the appearance of Galileo himself, as well as a workshop on telescopes. Too bad the weather did not co-operate and we could not see the International Space Station that was passing by, through the telescopes.

If you have kids, you should check out the Calendar at the Ontario Science Centre. Better yet, buy a family membership. It will pay for itself in only a few visits. The Gold Membership include iMax features as well as parking, so it's an even better deal.
