Description

Anyone can enjoy the beauty of our Universe on a dark and clear night – you just need to know how to find a good stargazing location, what to look for in the sky, and when the best time to see these stars and planets is. Gros Morne National Park has been working towards Dark Sky Preserve designation with the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada, adding to the roster of the many Parks Canada places awarded this honour. The presentation will discuss Parks Canada collaboration with Memorial University and what the park offers admirers of the night sky. We will also give practical tips on how to select the best time and place for stargazing, find your bearings, read sky maps, and trace constellations across the sky.

Presenters:
Angie Payne, Public Outreach Education Officer, Parks Canada
Dr. Svetlana Barkanova, Professor of Physics, Grenfell, Memorial University of Newfoundland
