Join us for an introduction to astronomy by taking part in an online presentation about what we can see in the winter night using standard binoculars.

The talk is presented by Stephan Paape, an amateur astronomer for nearly 20 years, who enjoys public outreach activities and live observing. He is a founding member of AstroPontiac, a group that offers free observing events in Gatineau Park (Luskville) and a travelling planetarium theatre service for schools and community groups.
