Participants will have access to the Queen's Observatory facilities which includes the main Celestron 14” telescope, small solar telescopes, and the video screening room. Astronomers in the screening room and Observatory dome will present the foundations of astronomical research, Observatory operations, and hot topics in astrophysics (such as recent discoveries with the James Webb Space Telescope). Weather permitting, observations of the Sun will also be made using telescopes on the outdoor deck. Join us for this enjoyable event, we hope to see you there!


Experience Queen's:

The Experience Queen’s Initiatives showcase different places across campus, allowing employees to learn about Queen's University in a new setting. This is a chance to provide employees with a tour and/or educational experience to better connect them to the Queen’s Campus. Part of our work in Employee Wellness Services is to create opportunities to staff that highlight the four priority focus areas from the campus wellbeing framework. The Experience Queen’s initiative will hopefully be a way to highlight places, while also promoting belonging and social connection.
