Cycling to Stargazing and movie night at Museum of Technology

  • Booth St & Sir John MacDonald Parkway

    Booth st & Sir John MacDonald Parkway, Ottawa, ON, Ottawa, ON (map)

    45.416393 -75.714661

  • I will be riding to the Perseids Meteor Shower Movie Night at the Museum of Science and Technology.

    Participants must:
    * Be comfortable in sharing the road with traffic
    * Have front and rear light for night riding
    * Have a bell (this is required by law)
    * Bring their own locks and water.

    This will be a cyclo-commuting calibre, a little stronger then the usual rides I organize. About half of the itenary will be on bike path with the other half on road. Proposed itenary is here: . The cycling portion of the event will be cancelled if there is *any* chance of rain forcasted for the evening the day before.

    We will meet at the north west corner of Booth and the River Parkway, next to the flags.

    From the Ottawa Geek Social Club:

    Perseids Meteor Shower Movie Night outside of the science and tech museum.

    Weather permitting, visitors can look through the historic 15-inch telescope at the stars, the planets, and the Moon.

    This program is free with donation. Your generosity helps the Museum maintain the Helen Sawyer Hogg Observatory and the astronomy programs.

    The full moon is on the 11th, but it will be close to the night ride Alexis has been asking for, ;)
