Have you ever wondered which constellations are visible in Whistler? Or which planets are bright enough to see? Maybe you're curious about how a telescope works?

We're excited to be hosting Bill Burnyeat, Program Manager at Canadian Planetariums, to answer all of your stargazing questions! Join us for a question & answer session with Bill, who has over 30 years of experience facilitating astronomy programs.

There will be two ways to join this event: you can email youthservices@whistlerlibrary.ca to sign up for the Zoom meeting, or you can visit the Whistler Public Library Facebook page to join us for the Facebook livestream!

However, if you have a burning question for our Astronomer, your best bet is to register and submit your question in advance, because those questions will get top priority.

Children of all ages are welcome!

Did you know: we own a telescope and binoculars that you can borrow!
