Planetarium Programs for BTC Members


April 2, 4 and 6

This year, for the first time in almost 375 years, a total solar eclipse will be casting a shadow across the Niagara Escarpment. This means that on April 8, 2024 the moon will pass between the sun and the earth and sections of the Bruce Trail, particularly in the south, will be prime viewing locations.

To celebrate this once-in-a-lifetime event, the Bruce Trail Conservancy (BTC) is hosting three FREE eclipse-themed planetarium programs for BTC members, offered by the W. J. McCallion Planetarium at McMaster University.

Join us for one of three hour-long programs in the unique domed planetarium. We’ll learn all about eclipses in general, how to view the upcoming solar eclipse safely, and what exactly to expect on April 8.

Hurry! Space is limited for each event. Limit two tickets per membership. Secure your spot today.
