Gordon MacMillan Southam Observatory

After the completion of the nearby H.R. MacMillan Space Centre in 1968, the Gordon MacMillan Southam Observatory was built in 1979 to explore the night sky and aids in the research of interesting phenomenon, studying of the moon and even the sun. Inside its 10 metre diameter and hemispherical dome, the Gordon MacMillan Southam Observatory features a 1/2 metre Cassegrain telescope which is fully computer controlled and is used for research and to educate the public.
