Join the University of Alberta Undergraduate Astronomy Society as they guide you through the cosmos, revealing its details with telescopes. Gather around the campfire for an evening of storytelling, stargazing, and camaraderie as you enjoy a Prairie Gardens Fire Roasters experience at dusk. Learn about the history and science of the Canadian night skies as you search for stars, gaze at the awe inspiring Aurora Borealis, all the while taking in the grandeur of the stretching universe.
