Let our local photographer and guide take you to one of our favourite dark spots to take it all in and capture the summer’s biggest meteor shower. Friday evening will consist of photography tips and tricks in class in Crowsnest Pass. Then, Saturday morning we will head out into the back country to get settled into our photography adventure. Throughout the night we will take naps and shoot the stars. We will have a leisurely Sunday as we head back to civilization. To really get a good photo, we will be up late throughout the night on Saturday night, so make sure you get lots of sleep the night before.Is this the adventure for you? This experience will take your photography skills to the next level. You may have dabbled in photography or you may have had your hand in night photography. However, you definitely own a camera that is not an iPhone. You also enjoy getting outside and you are fit enough to carry an overnight backpack with your gear up a small mountain.
An afternoon of fun awaits in the heart of the Beaver Hills Dark Sky Preserve on Milky Way Day. As night falls, take in the beauty of the park after dark! Skies above Elk Island National Park are naturally dark and provide the perfect backdrop to take in twinkling stars, a glowing moon, or dancing Northern Lights. Take in a stunning sunset over Astotin Lake, pick up a special night geocaching guide for a high tech scavenger hunt and peak through volunteer-provided telescopes to view the stars with stunning clarity. Night sky viewing is dependent on weather. To make the most of each nighttime visit bring a red light for stargazing; white light disrupts night vision. The event is free with paid entry.
