OUR GATEWAY TO THE UNIVERSE STAR PARTY IS HOSTED AT MARTEN RIVER PROVINCIAL PARK
The annual Powassan Maple Sugar Festival occurs on Saturday April 26th this year. Each year the North Bay Astronomy Club has been fortunate to be part of this great time. This year once again we will be set up in the bandshell in the middle of town with (weather permitting) some solar viewing, examples of different telescopes, and general astronomical information. Hope to see you all there. For any more information here is a link to the Festival website, check it out, and spend a great day outdoors. http://www.powassansyrupfestival.ca/
The first Star Party of 2014 is happening on May 1, 2, and 3rd at Mew Lake Provincial Park. The "FROZEN BANANA" is generally a great venue, with clear skies and good viewing.
