Event description

Description

This event registration is ONLY FOR ASTRONOMERS who are volunteering at the Fundy Stargaze. Visitors among the general public are welcome and encouraged to join us, but they must book their own campsites with the park if they wish to stay overnight. Visitors not camping overnight must have a park entrance permit.

PLEASE NOTE: We don't know yet whether we'll be at the new stargazing site atop the hill, or at the old site by the Chigneto South shelter. We'll announce where the observing site will be once it's known.

Free camping space is available to astronomers who are volunteering in the public outreach with a telescope and/or binoculars. You'll be able to request free camping space for you and your party when you register for this event.

Volunteering means that you already know how to set-up and operate your equipment, and that you can find celestial objects on your own. Volunteering also means that you're sharing the views with the general public at the observing field during the appointed time.

We'll be in a group campground, so don't expect much privacy around your tent or trailer.

We reserve the right to limit the number of spots that go out to astronomers who are not members of RASC New Brunswick. If we run of out of campsites, you can still book your own (at your expense) and join us at the observing area.

RASC members who intend to operate a green laser pointer are required to fill and submit this registration form.
