Astronomy is a very visual science and hobby, by watching the night sky Astronomers have been able to uncover many secrets of the universe. This holds true even today both professional and amateur astronomers alike still turn their gaze to the skies to learn more about the universe and admire it’s beauty.
Observing is one of the foundations of the hobby, The Thunder Bay Centre offers a monthly observing plus many impromptu opportunities to go observing with one or more of our members.
