Only 4 days left until the grand opening of our observatory at Sechelt Airport on Saturday, 27 June! Set up volunteers will be at the gate at 1 PM. Gates open to guests and members at 3 PM. Parking is in the field across from the observatory. Ceremony starts at 4 PM. Solar scopes will be set up for viewing sun spots and solar flares. We’ll have coolers with water and sparkling water and an anniversary cake for the ceremony. After the opening ceremony wraps up members will adjourn for supper, and then at sunset we’ll return to run the observatory until midnight.
At 1 PM today we passed the District of Sechelt’s final building inspection: We are go for launch!
