    Great experience with Bayshore Astronomy Club
    Excellent, knowledgeable, passionate volunteers who are happy to share their telescope site with you. I think an inexpensive sound system with a battery powered speaker and microphone would help keep people’s attention during the important and interesting light pollution talk at the beginning. This is ‘cottage country’ as I remember it from my youth…unique opportunities to share with your kids that they don’t get in the big city! Worth a late night drive up to Lion’s Head, no question

    Great experience for those who want to learn more about astronomy and see space wonders with their own eyes :)
    The crew did a wonderful and informative presentation about former space missions (and attempts) to reach the moon, quite fitting for the 54th anniversary of the first moon landing! The volunteers were extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and approachable, and made the experience especially valuable. Dante was also extremely knowledgeable, helpful, and eloquent! Besides that, the view was amazing, I haven't seen that many stars in years (when my town didn't have excessive street lights)!

    Out of this World!
    Great experience! We participated in the Tobermory event at Miller’s Family Camp (people may attend even if not currently staying on the campground). We learned a lot about space and enjoyed ourselves. We saw the moon, Saturn and different star clusters through a telescope. It was led by friendly and passionate people.

We loved this experience! Knowledgeable and friendly guides telling you about the Dark Sky Preserve and showing a variety of stars and planets through powerful telescopes. Singing Sands is the perfect spot to see the everything on a clear night including the meteor shower and the Milky Way! We loved this experience!

The staff running the program were friendly and knowledgeable. Seeing the moon in such high detail and being shown all the constellations was the perfect end to our stay on the Bruce Peninsula.

Bayside astronomy provided us with once in a lifetime experience. The team of experts and volunteers enthusiastically explained about stars, constellations, celestial bodies and we could view them with telescopes

This is the Bayside Astronomy.

We can only do this in the night.

There are many people coming here to enjoy!

The Bruce Peninsula has some of the darkest skies in southern Ontario.

This is a place where Milky Way blankets the sky from horizon and where the natural rhythm of darkness and light is preserved, creating healthy habitats for for wildlife and people alike.

The Northern Bruce Peninsula is a refuge for fark shies and a place,

Light pollution is the easiest pollution to fix, become a dark sky steward in your own neighborhood and help bring back the night.
