Calling all CCC Astronomers to take part in a Dark Skies experience organized by Mary-Jean McIntyre. Preceded by a hike (optional) in Lennox & Addington area, dinner (6 p.m.) is at Lakeview Tavern on Beaver Lake. We then take in a ‘Dark Skies’ viewing experience near Sheffield Conservation Area. ‘The L&A County Dark Sky Viewing Area is the most southerly point in Ontario that offers a night sky experience very similar to what was available more than 100 years ago. The site has ample parking and includes a large concrete pad for camera or telescope setup. The DSVA is perfect for anyone looking to observe the natural wonder of the stars…’
