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 starting tonight.

If you can’t make it out tonight you have three other chances to experience the wonders of the night sky on Friday, January 27, 2012, Saturday February 24, 1012 and on Saturday March 24, 2012.

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.
