Join our livestream family gathering for Solstice with Ingrid from the Museum at Home. She will show us how to light up the longest night of the year with a snow candle and tell us how many different cultures around the world celebrate the start of the astronomical winter.

Ingrid will be joined by Émilie Laflèche from the McGill Space Group who will show us how the seasons change with the Sun's path in our sky over the year. 

Registration for this event is now closed.
