Bring your camera, telescope or lawn chair out to the winery and take in the beauty of the cosmos.
MAY 16, 2015 from 8 PM to 11PM. In May, a group of volunteers from the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada (RASC) have confirmed that they will be bringing in their scopes for public outreach and viewing.
Also in May, a special, last-minute addition to the event: Gary Boyle, The Backyard Astronomer will present a lecture at 8 PM entitled "Our Cosmic Origin" in the winery building. Gary was the former president of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada, Ottawa branch, and a highly esteemed freelance astronomer/educator in Canada. Tweeting under the handle @astroeducator, Gary Boyle is a lifelong astronomy enthusiast who is passionate about sharing the wonders of the universe with others.
A donation of $10 would be appreciated. ALL proceeds from this evening go to our campaign to sponsor a PTSD Service dog for a Veteran in conjunction with National Service Dogs. http://www.nsd.on.ca/programs/skilled-companion-dogs-for-veterans
The winery will be open for tastings and wine by the glass.
On a clear night, the view is spectacular, given the low amount of light pollution.
