Tonight, H.R. MacMillan Space Centre welcomes you go join in on its first virtual family night to celebrate a galaxy far, far away – “May the 4th Be With You”.
Could there be a planet in our galaxy where a cloud city could exist? How would a double star system affect life on our planet, where we are used to living under one star, the Sun?
Dress as your favourite Rebel or Empire character and visit distant worlds beyond your imagination. Take part in the craft activity to get ready, by making your own May the 4th character headband from the comfort of your own home. Download the instructions here.

They will also be joined by special guest Mihai Cioroba, FX Lead at the Industrial Light and Magic studio, to talk about his work on three Star Wars films and two Star Wars spin offs.
