ENJOY A NIGHT OUT UNDER THE STARS

Sun. Aug. 11,[masked]:00 - 11:00 p.m.

Bring a blanket or lawn chair and head out to the Binbrook Conservation Area to witness the annual Perseid Meteor Shower. This is the best meteor shower of the year and the illumination of the moon will not greatly obstruct viewing. Enjoy this night under the stars in attendance with the Hamilton Amateur Astronomers (HAA), a non-profit organization that promotes the enjoyment and advancement of astronomy. For more details contact Mario Carr[masked] or [masked]. HAA website is www.amateurastronomy.org. Meet at the Binbrook Conservation Area, 5050 Harrison Rd., Binbrook.

    Well we did not get the stars or the meteors but we got a beautiful sunset and lots of laughs!

    Hope you got that beautiful sunset. I got home late and clouds were coming in, but there was wonderful colour briefly at sunset.

    I would say it is still a go! We might get a half decent sunset if nothing else!

    Hi Dan,
    Sounds like it is still a 'go'.
    Where exactly are we meeting and at what time?
    I have never been there so specifics would be great as it will be getting dark.
    Thanks for arranging this - sounds awesome!
