One of the major reasons we went to Tobermory was to watch the Perseid meteor shower because the campground we booked was supposed to have a stargazing area. It was a disappointment because the site was not open enough and it was close to highway...More

Thanks for your kind review and we are glad you enjoyed the program. We had a shortage of volunteers that night so we could not had one scope, but there should be shorter lineups in the future.

We are lucky to have the dedicated volunteers who provide this wonderful opportunity! A must-see for people from urban areas who rarely get a glimpse of the true wonders of the night sky.
