Osoyoos and the South Okanagan are an ideal location for night time stargazers. Here you'll find dark skies perfect for spotting the planets, stars and galaxies. There are many spots around Osoyoos to view the night skies, be it off a meandering country road in the valley, or from the heights of a hill. All you need is a pair of binoculars, perhaps a telescope, a warm coat, and a thermos of coffee.
You might also want to visit the nearby Dominion Astrophysical Observatory. The largest of its kind in Canada, its radio telescopes capture the sounds of the universe.
Astronomers from amateur to professional ascend Mount Kobau in August for the yearly Mount Kobau Star Party. From this mile-high summit the heaven-gazing is resplendent. Visit: mksp.ca.
