You will learn about different astronomical phenomena and be amazed at the beauty of his photographs. Alan will also give us information about the upcoming eclipses visible from Canada: a lunar eclipse on October 8th and a partial solar eclipse on October 23.

Workshop for Teachers
Is astronomy part of your school curriculum but you feel uncomfortable teaching it to your students? Would you like to feel more confident and better prepared to answer the many questions your students may have? If so, then this workshop is for you! During those three weeks, we will explain many astronomical concepts, while giving you tips on how to tech them, activities to use in class and access to many resources. October 20th - November 7th

Special Webinar - The TMT and the Canadian Contribution
The next generation of telescopes will have mirrors 30 or 40 meters across. Canada has been involved in the Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) project for many years and construction is now beginning on the summit of Mauna Kea in Hawaii. For this webinar, our guest speaker will be Luc Simard, an astrophysicist involved with the TMT since the beginning. He will give us an overview of the project and the role Canadian astronomers are playing in this international endeavor. Wednesday November 26th at 2pm (Eastern) - 11am (Pacific)
