The SCC Observatory will be open for public viewing at 9 PM on Saturday, August 8, 2015. The SCC Observatory is at the Sechelt Airport: entrance is at the gate at the top of Field Rd where you will see this sandwich board sign:

Check out our Observatory page for more information on the SCC Observatory. Please, no food or drinks and only use red light flashlights to preserve viewer’s night vision. No pets please: They are prohibited by Transport Canada regulations for this airfield.

2015-8-8 Update, 7:30 PM: It is currently raining at the observatory and the weather forecast is not looking promising for tonight. Clear Dark Sky is not showing any chance of viewing the sky until at least after 2 AM. So the viewing session is unfortunately cancelled due to the weather. The next observatory opening for members is Wednesday, 12 August, for the Perseid shower. The next public opening is 12 September (weather permitting).
