Virtual International Astronomy Day (vIAD) is a free all-day event hosted by the Ottawa Chapter using the Zoom webinar platform on Saturday, May 15th. Throughout the day we will be providing a variety of live streams from different amateur astronomers in the Ottawa area. You will have an opportunity to see live video streams from different types of telescopes, showing views of the Sun, Moon, and deep-sky objects such as galaxies and globular clusters. In addition to the live scope views, other local astronomers will be giving short astronomy-related presentations on various topics. This event is rain or shine and is meant for people of all ages.
