Home News 2014 05 19 Astronomy Weekend with Meira Epstein - May 3/4 2014

On Saturday May 3rd and Sunday May 4th, over 20 local astrologers came down to Victoria College at the University of Toronto. Their mission was to attend a weekend workshop on astronomy with visiting New York astrologer, Meira Epstein. To start the weekend off in the right way, we were all absolutely thrilled to find a large telescope on display immediately outside our meeting room on the 3rd floor. This telescope had been brought over to Canada from the UK in 1882 and installed in one of the College's turrets. It had been used to observe the transit of Venus  in 1882 and to teach astronomy to the students.  Here we were 120 years later, by sheer coincidence, doing the same thing. The weekend was an amazing and comprehensive look at all the astronomy that astrologers need. Meira was knowledgeable and gracious. We will welcome her back to Toronto anytime!!
