On a semi-related topic: when we were driving up to Pitt Lake the other night for viewing, we happened to catch the ISS passing over. It's super-bright for a short time due to the solar panels being so reflective.

Its the time of the year again!.

I heard this isn't a good year as the Super Moon is going present during the peak time of the Perseid Meteor shower. Anyone out for it this year?

There's no charge or requirement of being a member to use Dark Sky Park is there? Someone I was talking to last year said you have to be a member of the astronomy association in order to go there. Couldn't find anything on their website.

I think there's a section that will be roped off that's for members only - so they have an area for the telescopes and stuff. The rest of the park is open to the public - it's just a city park.

Ahh okay, thanks gars From what I've read in this thread, a lot of the time they'll let you look through the telescope anyway. It's only 15 minutes from my bf's place, so I'm dragging him to go look this weekend lol.

Went to Pitt Lake last night for a couple hours. Saw a few good ones stream across the sky, but nothing crazy.

My co-worker was at Pitt Lake last night around 11 until car loads of Asians pulled up and wouldn't shut up so he left. Before that he saw a couple great meteors

you aren't really going to see anything in the middle of the city, particularly that close to downtown.

better chance going up cypress if you don't want to go that far.
