He’ll also touch on  the impact upon us due to astronomical activities and orbiting microsatellites and satellite constellations.

After Pellerin’s talk, feel free to explore the park. Take in the spectacular experience of the dark skies of Point Pelee. Stay late and find out what’s happening in the park after dark.

There will be no formal programs on the evening of May 20. Upon arrival at the park gate, you can pick up a seasonal star chart. The park will be open until midnight, unless otherwise specified.
