A night under the stars in Agassiz

Families invited to marvel at Perseids with astronomer

Bring the whole family and join the Fraser Valley Astronomer’s Society for a guided tour of the night’s sky and witness the wonders of the Perseid meteor shower.

A 20” telescopic will be available for enhanced viewing of constellations and other astronomical sights. Hot chocolate is being served, but families are asked to bring their own flashlight, blankets and chairs.

Those who own telescopes are welcome to bring them. All ages are welcome, but parental supervision is required.

The program will run weather permitting, from 9:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. on Aug. 9, and there is a registration fee of $15 a person or $40 a family. Register through the District of Kent Fitness/ Activity Centre.
