    Hi,
    I am an amateur astronomer, and a member of the local astro clubs (including Royal Astronomical Society of Canada, Ottawa centre), and about twice a month set up my telescope up on the street (Stonebriar Drive) to show people the planets, and other interesting targets. A few times we have taken the setup out to the nearest soccer field, to get away from trees and some light pollution. People always have a good time, and really enjoy seeing Jupiter’s moons or Saturn’s rings for the first time.

    Would it be feasible, or even advisable, to let the larger community know that I’m having a ‘star party’? I usually simply advertise with a whiteboard on my lawn, and often get 20 to 30 people to come by, and sometimes stay for an hour or two. Out in the park, I can also find other objects such as star clusters, nebulae, and binary stars, since it is slightly darker. Often the attendees say “You should let other people know when you do this”.

    Just wanted to run the idea by you; I did one last Saturday night (the 21st), and the crowd insisted we move to the soccer field; about 25 people total had a view, including a large pack of kids.

    Let me know what you think,

    Sincerely,

    Wm. Myles
    Stonebriar Drive

    • Hey Wm,

      Not sure if anyone ever got back to you on this, but thanks for that offer! Hopefully this year we’ll have the chance to make it a bigger event, and meet up in the soccer field. I know there are definitely other astronomers in the area (one of which I know has a massive telescope sitting in his living room who would probably LOVE to bring out to the event…with help to carry it). Please pick a date for 2020 (after CORIV19 has settled…September might work, but August before school starts might be better, if it makes sense), and give us 1 month notice beforehand through our gmail account (centrepointeca@gmail.com) so we can plan for it, and maybe get posters up to advertise the event. I think by that time, people will be looking forward to such an event.

      Take care, stay safe, and hope to hear from you near the end of the summer!
      Christopher Canham
