Nova East 2024


Post by KathyNS »

The Nova East star party is the annual astro camp-out of the RASC's Halifax Centre. This year, it will be held at Blomidon Provincial Park, near Canning, NS. The 2024 event will be held Aug 9-11. Registration is required. Advance registrations will be announced here when they are available.

The event is normally held at Smiley's Provincial Park, but the flood damage that forced last year's Nova East to be cancelled at the last minute is still being repaired. The Park cannot tell us whether the group camping area will be available, so we have moved it to Blomidon Provincial Park. Facilities there will be very similar to those at Smiley's, and the sky should be even darker.
