I am finally in a position to update you on Saturdays outing to watch the Perseids.
I apologize for not sending anything out earlier, however the area I was planning to go to was heavily affected by the flooding and the access was closed. I was waiting to see if it would open in time (it won't). I was also looking for another venue that would be easy to access and able to accommodate everyone, within a reasonable driving distance from Calgary. I couldn't. :(
Therefore, as with all things mountain the plan now looks like this:
We will meet at 6 PM at Sommerset/Bridlewood Train Station (East side parking lot), drive to Highwood Junction which is West of Longview. This is a nice open area and the light pollution from Calgary should be minimal. There is a hill there we can hike up or hang out at the side of the road and watch the meteor shower until you have had enough and then head home.
Bring warm clothes and snacks (just like going to the drive in movie theater - for those who remember those).
If you have any questions or comments please ask.
