Location in the east GTA for 2016 observing season will be the big parking lot and the grassy area behind Macedonian Church "St. Nedela" in Ajax, located at 485 Bayly Street West.

Location in the west GTA for 2016 observing season will be the parking lot at the Queensway Baptist Church in Etobicoke, located at 950 Islington Avenue.

Dark location far from the city for 2016 observing season will be from a place located on a large private property on 7th Line (Hwy 88 west of Hwy 400), a bit north of Tottenham, Ontario. It will serve the public from all GTA and will be used for evening sky observing from dark location far from the city. Will be observed the so-called deep-sky celestial objects - nebulae, star clusters and galaxies which can not be seen from inside the cities because of the light pollution.
Please note that all locations where the observing events will be held are private property. Respect the property, the owners and the neighbors. These locations are given to us for free to use them and to enjoy the sky from people who like astronomy. Without their generosity organizing the observing events still will be possible, but the cost for attending the observing events will be four to five times bigger.
Smoking and drinking alcohol are not allowed at the observing events. You can bring food and water with you if you want, and whatever else you think you will need. Several chairs will be available but you can bring your own too. Please place all garbage in the garbage bin that will be provided at the site.
Respect the speed limit when driving to and from the observing events. There are some uphills and downhills where your car can speed up by itself over the speed limit and you will get a fine for that. The sky observing event should cost you five or ten dollars, and not a fortune.
Do not drink and drive. If you are not able to come to the observing event you are already registered, please call me and I will reschedule your visit for the next one. It is that simple.
