WHAT’S NEW

A FULL CHRISTMAS

Here at Observatory Hill we're all a little obsessed with outer space, and for good reason. Our whole development is inspired by Richmond Hill's historic David Dunlap Observatory (The DDO,) sure, but let's be real, why wouldn't we be? Space is just cool! It's awe inspiring, it's almost entirely undiscovered, and it helps us build our dreams and aspirations. Not everyone can live at Observatory Hill though, so not everyone will get to experience great leaps of discovery or see what an astronomer sees; however, something really cool is coming that people all over the world can check...

THE DAVID DUNLAP OBSERVATORY AND ITS INFLUENCE ON POPULAR CULTURE

You may be interested to know, the David Dunlap Observatory has actually contributed a great deal to the world of science fiction and popular culture, more than you might realize.

A LOCAL STAR

Anyone who's ever visited the David Dunlap Observatory knows it's an incredibly special place. Not only is it strikingly beautiful, it also carries an aura that's almost surreal; perhaps that's why it was chosen to be a star, -in the figurative sense of course. In 1960 the film "Universe" was released by the National Film Board of Canada, and was met with much praise. It was nominated for an Oscar in the 'best documentary' category the year it was released, and offered some of the most vivid special effects anyone had ever seen....

THESE ASTRONOMY PROGRAMS ARE OUT OF THIS WORLD

Great news for all stargazers! The David Dunlap Observatory is now open to the public and is hosting a series of programs all summer and autumn. Both aspiring astronomers and young space explorers alike will find something to love, thanks to the wide expanse of programs the DDO is offering this year.

Not too long ago the future of the DDO was placed in uncertainty. However, since the Town of Richmond Hill assumed ownership in March of 2016, the stars have shined brightly on the recently-named Heritage Site. Having partnered with the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada, the Observatory is offering several different programs that will extend well into October. Also starting in September, all science enthusiasts will be able to organize a group booking for educational programs within the Observatory itself!

The new residents of Observatory Hill’s master-planned community will easily be able to take advantage of these exciting new programs, as the site itself is mere minutes away from the new development.

The RASC is hosting Astronomy-Themed Family and Lecture Nights where you can learn more about the wonders of our universe. Or you can attend Mars Madness where you can gaze through the 3rd largest telescope in the world to get a glimpse of Mars, as it reaches the closest yearly point to Earth.

For young space enthusiasts, the DDO, in partnership with the city of Richmond Hill, is offering astronomy-themed week-long summer camps. Kids can learn about the wonders of Outer Space and the celestial objects that inhabit our Universe.

This summer, there is loads to see and do at the David Dunlap Observatory. So check out Richmond Hill’s program offerings and launch your year into the stratosphere!
