THE STORY:

Since February 2014, Ottawa #popscope has brought astronomy to the streetcorners and parks of Ottawa, a city of 1 million and Canada's capital. With amateurs, local scientists, and teachers, we have hosted dozens of pop-up astronomy nights that show urban residents the rings of Saturn or Jupiter's moons, often for the first time. We think astronomy is a powerful and fun way to bring diverse communities together, active public spaces, and inspire children to study science. We want to do more. We want to host more #popscope nights to bring astronomy to even more people from all across the city. That's why we need your help. By donating to Ottawa #popscope, you will help us purchase more telescope equipment and fund more community outreach efforts across the city. The dollar you donate will fund a public astronomy that might give a child her first view of Saturn, might inspire a teenager to study astronomy, or help an elderly resident connect with his neighbours. Thank you! Learn more at www.popscope.org
