Dark Sky Presentation
Terra Nova National Park
August 23, 2014
Despite no prospect for any observing and periodic drizzle starting up again, following most of the day quite dry and occasionally threatening to clear, we had a very good turnout Saturday evening. See poster attached. The official headcount was 51 with 5 Park staff. Adie Hayes introduced the theme for the evening - Dark Sky Preserves (DSPs), etc - a few songs followed, then my condensed presentation on light pollution, finding constellations, mythology and a little cosmology, more songs followed, then a TV-style quiz show with a dark sky focus followed by more songs.
Jerry explains the wonders of astronomical viewing in a dark sky environment
