Mount Allison Gemini Observatory (MAGO) is a dual-dome astronomical observational observatory housing two identical 11" Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes. It is used extensively by the physics department for hands-on astronomy classes, as well as being open to the public for special viewing nights and activities. Some of the celestial objects viewed through our telescopes include planets and moons of our solar system, nebulae, star clusters, and galaxies.

 

Upcoming Starry Sackville

 

 The MAGO will be open to the public from 2:45pm to 5pm on August 21st for the solar eclipse. 

Both telescopes are equipped with solar filters, allowing us to view the eclipse safely.  

We also have about 200 eclipse glasses to give away, courtesy of Let's Talk Science.  

 Drs. Catherine Lovekin and Robert Sorba will be on hand to answer questions.
