Guided Solar Walk & Observatory Tour

June 30, 2017 - July 3, 2017

Spend an evening with the planets at U of T Scarborough! A free event for four nights only.

Take a guided tour of our brand new scale model of the solar system that spans our entire campus, with markers representing the planets placed in the exact locations as they would have been on Canada’s confederation, July 1, 1867.

Next, listen to an engaging talk from one of University of Toronto’s astrophysicists.

Finally, as night sets in, head up to our rooftop observatory with the scientists to look through our telescopes and learn more about the solar system.

No tickets or registration required.

Wear comfortable footwear and dress for the weather—tours will go on rain or shine.
