Virtual Mars Madness Event

Description: Broadcasting Live from the Richmond Hill David Dunlap Observatory! Although Earth passes by Mars every couple of years, it's only during rarer Great Opposition years like 2020 that the distance between the two planets is at its smallest, making Mars appear much larger when viewed through telescopes here on Earth. Join us at our Mars Madness event for a chance to see Mars at its very best. We will have views through telescopes, including the largest telescope in Canada, guidance to help you find Mars for yourself from your own backyard, interesting facts and stories about Mars and its exploration, special guests and fun activities. Best of all, you get to enjoy all of this from the comfort of your own home! Don’t wait till 2035 to see the next Great Opposition of Mars! The program is most suitable for adults and older children (due to the late start-times). Prior to the start of your program, you will be emailed information containing the link to join the virtual program and any specific information relating to your program. $12.50 per person
