RAO Milky Way Night #10 (July 21, 2012).jpg
About 500 people attended the annual Milky Way Night at the RAO, on a great summer night to sit out under the stars and get expert guided tours of the night sky...Public and local astronomers gathered at the Rothney Astrophysical Observatory on July 21, 2012 for one of the annual Milky Way Nights presented by the RAO. From 10 pm to 2 am several hundred people stargazed under clear skies, enjoyed the naked eye views of the Milky Way and telescopic views of deep-sky objects such as nebulas and galaxies. Volunteers from the Calgary Centre of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada and staff from TELUS Spark helped present the stars to the public.
