EXHIBITION: "WORLDS OF THE NIGHT".

New Brunswick Museum, 1 Market Square.

The exhibition "Worlds of the Night" was produced by the Sherbrooke Museum of Nature and Science with the financial contribution of the Museums Assistance program from Heritage Canada.  The best stories are told at night, when the atmosphere is charged with mystery and your mind ready for emotions. Wander through half-light in the exhibition Worlds of the Night and discover what happens in your brain but also outside in the wild when the sun is out. You certainly will not shut your eyes all night!  Worlds of the Night uses both dimmed and glowing light atmospheres to provide a mysterious and exciting experience while learning about astonishing night facts. Children will finally have the opportunity to stay up all night! They will also camp under the stars, play hide-and-seek in a maze and play with desert (plush) animals.  www.nbm-mnb.ca   (506) 643-2300 / 1888-268-9595.

PARTIAL ECLIPSE OF THE SUN.

Irving Nature Park, Sand Cove Road, West.

On the afternoon of August 21 more than half the Sun will disappear over New Brunswick. Don't be alarmed, but be safe. Join local members and guests of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada NB Centre at the Irving Nature Park in observing the Moon pass in front of the Sun through safely filtered telescopes. This is the best partial solar eclipse for our area in the past 18 years. The eclipse begins at 2:37 pm, reaches maximum eclipse at 3:49 when 59% of the Sun is covered, and it ends at 4:56 pm. With luck we might see sunspots and prominences on the Sun through the filtered telescopes. Special eclipse viewers will be available to watch the event safely with just your eyes, courtesy of the RASC. Do not observe the eclipse without proper eye protection!
