Inspired by astronomy? Join Earthshine as we bring a state-of-the-art planetarium to Mississauga!
Why a planetarium?
A planetarium provides city visitors a spectacular view of the night sky, one only visible far away from city lights.
Astronomy permeates the history, philosophy, mythology and religion of every culture in Canada. Students in particular have an almost natural interest in astronomy. This interest makes astronomy and space a perfect vehicle for teaching and inspiring students to learn about science.
As a non-profit charitable organization, the Earthshine Astronomy and Space Science Organization (EASSO) develops and runs astronomy education and public outreach activities in Mississauga and the western Greater Toronto Area.
Earthshine's vision is to build and operate a state-of-the-art Planetarium and Space Discovery Centre in the western GTA.
