Tonight is the second night of the clubs star party at our airport site at the top of field rd…
Last nights conditions were exceptional… at least the clarity of the sky was. While it was not so good for viewing planets because of the turbulence in the air the transparency was excellent. The milky way was etched sharply against a black background of stars and was
clearly visible from the north east horizon down to the southern horizon. The club scope was up and running as well as numerous other scopes from members and guests. Among the numerous star clusters and galaxies we viewed we were also treated to 2 passes of the space station and numerous bright meteors from 2 currently active meteor showers.
We also have several guests from the Victoria centre staying on site and possibly some today from Vancouver… feel free to drop by the site to say hello and welcome them to our beautiful area.
If all goes well, weather wise, tonight should be spectacular!!!!
the gate is closed now but unlocked so members can still access the site…pls leave gate as you find it when you enter.
Members and guests are welcome…
I hope to see you there!
