Canadian Astronomy Images

This collection of images by amateur and professional astronomers, photographers and artists from across Canada celebrates the International Year of Astronomy, 2009. While some images were made using large ground-based and satellite-based telescopes, others were made using no more than a consumer- level camera and a willingness to stay up past others’ bedtimes and look at the sky. These images are a tribute to the continued fascination and delight found in the night sky.
