From public lectures to signature celebrations such as Canada Day, we're honoured to invite our community to the University of Waterloo.

Stargazing party mesmerizes community audiences

Last night, hundreds of members of our community came to campus to indulge in and learn about astronomy. Featuring a unique public lecture about space rocks followed by a stargazing party at Columbia Lake Fields, people of all ages were mesmerized by our solar system.


Stargazing at Waterloo

Despite the unpredictable weather the stars aligned and the skies cleared just in time for the University of Waterloo’s annual Perseid Stargazing Party.  Over 200 members of the local community joined Waterloo’s Faculty of Science and local Royal Astronomical Society of Canada members as they hosted a stargazing party at the University’s Columbia Lake Fields.
