Burke-Gaffney Observatory Public Open Houses - Friday Nights PDF Print E-mail

Join us for a peek through the telescope at Saint Mary's University's Burke-Gaffney Observatory.

Detailed information about our FREE Public Open Houses is here.

The scheduled upcoming dates are:

  • Friday, February 10 at 7pm - SOLD OUT
  • Friday, February 24 at 7pm (may be cancelled due to University break week)
  • Friday, March 10 at 8pm
  • Friday, March 24 at 9pm
  • Friday, April 14 at 9pm
  • Friday, April 28 at 9:30pm

Reserve tickets here (please read carefully the information at the top of that page).

We understand the frustration you may have in trying to get tickets, but we do not have a lot of clear nights in Halifax, can only accommodate about 24 people (and provide a good experience), and we do not have the volunteer or staff resources to schedule events more than twice a month for most of the year and weekly June to September.

Any other information can be obtained by contacting Dave Lane, Observatory Director.
We also offer private tours for organized groups of people. Details are here.
