    Default GTA Observing Thread



    I'm going to let the Forks of the Credit thread die and start a new one seeing there are a few more observing sites other than the Forks that we now visit.

    So post here if you are going out observing in the Greater Toronto area or feel free to come out to any of the sessions posted. With summer coming up all the fair-weather observers are coming out of their hiding holes so would be good to get quite a few more people out. No experience or equipment is necessary.


    This coming Victoria Day weekend possibly looking at maybe the Forks if the weather is good. Not too sure though as on long-weekends it is quite busy even at night and will probably have a fair share of people lighting off fireworks which can get somewhat annoying. I'll post GO/NO GO by Friday 1700hrs.

    Hey Gus that would be awesome. Just been outside and its perfect for a change, very light breeze, around 22C, no humidty which is kind of bizarre, just a few clouds but should be clear by 9pm. I'm kinda excited, its my first real chance to use my 8 inch newt at the forks with no moon and hopefully good conditions. Some fog may come in later and humidity may kick in but it should be a good night!!

    Clear Skies to all please
