Peterborough Astronomical Association – Observations

Summertime is great fun as the days get longer and better except for one group of observers – Astronomers. Already light pollution around the major cities and highways limit observations but add the summer glow and telescope observations become even more Deep Night oriented.

On one hand there is the exceptional beauty of the Niagara Escarpment with its ravines and bay meeting Lake Ontario versus the surge of industrial pollution from its steel mills, factories, and entwining highway commerce. Perhaps in compensation for this battle, the city of Hamilton…

Fall Snow Graces UofT
