Presented by Don Hladiuk

Using many beautiful photos of astronomical objects, Don will provide helpful tips on how to navigate the starry sky and enjoy its wonders from within the lights of a big city.

Don Hladiuk is an amateur astronomer who has enjoyed looking up at the night sky since he was a young boy. He has been an active volunteer in the community and is perhaps best known as the Star Man on the CBC radio show the Calgary EyeOpener. For his 40 years of community service, asteroid 73704 was named asteroid “Hladiuk”. You can follow Don on Twitter and Instagram.
