2017-02-16 20:58:56   @AstroBackyard I'm not aware of any astronomy events in ottawa this weekend. Lots of people have observatories. ....
2017-02-11 21:19:41   If you missed Dr. Hamner's talk "Science of Spiral Galaxies" last thur: see the video:
2017-02-10 23:47:01   best time of day to see comet 45P: 3am. a bit late for most people. :(
2017-02-10 23:41:23   closest place for a cloud-free view of tonight's eclipse: South Carolina. :(
2017-02-10 23:38:23   @Natasha_DSouza @TorontoStar You might need finder chart (star map) to see 49P
2017-02-10 23:37:47   for comet 45P, i'd pick the shoulder of a country road outside of the reddish area on this map (attached).
2017-02-10 23:36:37   Tonight's eclipse will not be visible from ottawa because it is (will be) overcast. :(
