Our upcoming explorer day will be with the Nanaimo Astronomy Society on Saturday Feb 03 at 6:00pm. We will meet at their observatory: Paine Horticultural Centre, 2324 E Wellington Rd, Nanaimo. Learn about winter constellations, view Venus, Mars and Jupiter in the telescope, and let’s see what else there is to spot in our night sky this February!
This explorer day is weather permitting – so we will update you the day of the event as to whether it is still a go.

Explorer Day Etiquette:

  • Be prepared to HAVE FUN!
  • Pre-registration with your Club Leader is required for most Explorer Days (Friends are welcome if space permits).
  • Please arrive 5-10 minutes before the scheduled start time to ensure enough time for passport stamping and organization. Starting times are firm, and Leaders cannot wait for late-comers!
  • Please stay with the Leader and let them know if you are leaving early.
  • Children must always be accompanied by an adult guardian, who is responsible for their behaviour. Children consistently disrupting the experience of others may be asked to leave.
  • Bring appropriate weather gear, sunscreen, snacks, water, and other useful tools like binoculars, sketch books, cameras, and magnifying glasses.
