Stargazers gather at Comox Library

Are you interested in learning more about the mysteries of the night sky?

Are you interested in learning more about the mysteries of the night sky?

Then join a new drop-in stargazing group that will meet weekly starting March 28 at 7 p.m. on Thursdays at the Comox Library at 1720 Beaufort Ave. Weather permitting, the group will proceed down to the viewing area, Marina Park, at 7:15 p.m.

People of all ages are welcome, from casual stargazers to seasoned astronomers. These sessions might be of use to sailors interested in celestial navigation (you never know when the GPS unit’s batteries will run out)

No special equipment is required, although participants are welcome to bring binoculars and a tripod. A scattering of telescopes will probably appear in future sessions.

For more information, call the library at 250-339-2971, or visit the website at www.virl.bc.ca.
