I am taking my astronomy class for liberal arts majors = 40 students out for some dark park viewing tonight, Monday April 6. Come share the skies with an enthusiastic bunch of college students who have many questions. We are bringing the College's 8.5 inch Celestron, a 6 inch Dobsonian, a whole bunch of binoculars, star maps, etc. There will be lots of Tim Horton's doughnuts and chocolate to eat. We have to leave by 9:15 pm at the latest. The more the merrier, and the more telescopes the more the students get to learn. You can join us on the bus. It leaves Douglas College at the corner of 7th Street and Agnes in New Westminster at 7:02 pm. Yes, I will be that precise. There is room for about 15 Meet Up people on the bus, and of course the park can hold many many people.

    A very nice location. It was the first time that I had been there. There was a little more cloud than forecast, but the students enjoyed the big "bowl" view as opposed to looking out from one side of Douglas College at a time with lots of light pollution and apartment buildings blocking the view. We will definitely go back.
