A good (low-level) presentation from Weather Network - promoting dark skies and getting the word out to the general public.

Exceptional place to view . Have not been there for twenty years but visited many times when living in , Langley . After getting into astronomy the year before thought I had “ learned “ to navigate the stars , unfortunately all the gaps between the constellations were filled in with multitudes of faint stars and star hopping became a challenge .  First views of Uranus and Neptune out there also.

 Was working on a horse farm at the time , would put the horses in the barn at supper time for the night , then tear off to Manning Park to set up and view until four in the morning , then tear down , drive back to Langley to put the horses out in the paddock for breakfast and go to bed for a few hours. Great stuff. Definitely a Dark Sky Highway ! First picture from Cascade Lookout second pic shows members from Vancouver Centre out for the weekend.
