TELESCOPE OBSERVING

Looking through a telescope and seeing the cosmos with your own eye is the greatest joy in astronomy. We offer many opportunities for you to share in this experience, guided by University of Toronto astronomers.  

The graduate students in the Department of Astronomy & Astrophysics operate our popular monthly AstroTour talks, which include visits to our observatory.  

You can also visit our observatory as part of your package when you make a Planetarium Booking.

During the summer months, we take our collection of solar telescopes to street corners in downtown Toronto so passers-by can see the Sun in a spectacular new way. See our Sidewalk Astronomy page  for details.
