August 22 and 23rd is a new Moon weekend.
And that also happens to be the time Starfest will take place in Mount Forest, Ontario.
It's located about 2 hours northwest of the city of Toronto.
Yes, the annual event, will soon be upon us.
Now for those of you who have never been to a star party, and may not be familiar with what happens,
in a nutshell it's this.
For some it's a rite of passage:
A gathering of amateur astronomers, much like yourself, who wanna hang out and stargaze, take images,
socialize, make a new friend or two if you like, and just generally have a good time.
Plus, during Friday and Saturday, you've got some interesting talks on lectures on all kinds of astronomical
subjects, that you can attend if you like. Or not.
J ust take a dip in the swimming pool if you prefer during the day.
Now I'll be there, along with some of the Khanscope crew and we will have a display in the commercial
area, down by the big tent (that's where all the lectures are).
We will be bringing along some new products to show off, and of course many sale items and we'll have
some clearance merchandise too, at bargain prices.
Take a moment to drop by and say, "Hello" and introduce yourself if we haven't had the pleasure of meeting

Hope to see you there!
PS Starfest is a family event, and all are welcome. Beginner, advanced it does not matter.
