The H.R. MacMillan Space Centre temporarily closed to the public on March 18, 2020. All programming was cancelled as a preventative measure to help slow the spread of COVID-19 through our community. We are busy getting ready for your return, but in the meantime we are excited to announce that we will be adding to our many virtual programs, online resources and outdoor programming on select dates from June to September. Multi-media astronomy shows in the Planetarium Star Theatre are enhanced by 20-minute live demonstrations in the GroundStation Canada Theatre that keep you up-to-date on the latest space news. The Cosmic Courtyard exhibit gallery contains a real piece of moon rock you can actually touch, a J-2 Rocket Engine, artifacts and simulations. On Saturday nights you can visit the Gordon Southam Observatory right next door and, if the skies are clear, you can see stars and maybe even a planet through the .5 metre Cassegrain telescope.
