Dark Sky Night at Point Pelee National Park

December 9 @ 7:00 pm - 11:55 pm

Dark Sky Night at Point Pelee National Park

Enjoy a spectacular view of the stars during Dark Sky Night at Point Pelee National Park on Saturday, December 9, 2018.

Point Pelee National Park is staying open until midnight so visitors can join members of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada to experience the most exhilarating stargazing experience in our region.

Explore the park after dark and experience the dark skies of Point Pelee. You’ll have the opportunity to stay late and see what goes on after dark.

Point Pelee National Park is designated as a Dark Sky Preserve by the Windsor Centre of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada.

Be sure to dress warm and bring your binoculars and telescopes, or take a look through one of the special telescopes on site for the evening.

These dates offer the darkest skies for optimum viewing.
