Point Pelee National Park invites you to experience the beauty of the night sky.

The park has been designated as a Dark Sky Preserve by the Windsor Centre of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada and will be open until midnight once a month throughout the winter for stargazing Saturday night.

If you can’t make it out this month you have four other chances to experience the wonders of the night sky on February 9th, March 9th, April 7th and May 11th.

These dates were chosen because they offer the darkest skies for optimum viewing due to their proximity to the new moon.

For the best star gazing encounters, the park recommends that you come equipped with binoculars or a telescope.
