We will be having a public viewing session at the SCC Observatory on Saturday, November 14, at 7:00 PM (weather permitting). 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 or laser pointers please: They are prohibited by Transport Canada regulations for this airfield. We will update this post on 14 November to advise whether the weather will permit us to open that night.
UPDATE 13 November: Clear Dark Skies is showing an overcast night for 14 November at present. We’ll update this on the 14th, but it is not looking hopeful for a viewing session this Saturday.
UPDATE 14 November, 11 AM: The forecast is for continuing clouds and showers and the Clear Dark Sky chart shows unrelieved overcast tonight, so unfortunately we’re cancelling tonight’s viewing session. The next public viewing date is 12 December.
