Labrador Astronomy & Local Geology
Lovers of the night sky know that light pollution is a bane of stargazing. With no streetlights or large towns to the north, south and west and the Atlantic Ocean to the east for thousands of kilometres, there are no issues with unwanted light in Battle Harbour. Join us and astronomer Garry Dymond August 9-11 for a featured talk about local Astronomy & Geology!
Garry is the owner and operator of Fireball Planetarium and has been an amateur astronomer for over 50 years. In 1991, Garry was awarded the Service Medal of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada (RASC) for his work in bringing astronomy education to the public. Over the past 15 years, Garry has run the public shows for the Marine Institute Planetarium in St. John’s. Garry has been a member of the RASC, American Meteor Society, International Meteor Organization (IMO) and served on the Meteorite and Impact Advisory Committee of the Canadian Space Agency.
