On Tuesday, 11 July, Bruce Fryer and Charles Ennis teamed up with Coast Cable TV staff Steve Sleep and Brittany Broderson and drove up to the Dominion Radio Astrophysical Observatory (DRAO) at White Lake near Penticton to film sequences for the 3rd season of Night Lights. We spent several hours doing interviews of DRAO director Sean Dougherty and Dr. Ken Tapping at the various radio telescopes and in control rooms. Due to the numerous forest fires in the interior the skies were smoky.
Later we drove up to the Okanagan Centre’s observatory to get more footage.
After spending the night in Kelowna, we drove down to Jack Newton’s Observatory B & B in Osoyoos to film some segments before returning to the Coast.
