picnic table perspectives (Ajax)

Will and I returned from the GVC cocktail party to Mosport. We quickly put up the tents (since the tent-trailer is now broken) for our accommodation. Then, enjoying a nightcap, we both lay down atop picnic tables to stare at the sky.

It was quite beautiful. The Milky Way was visible with dark regions standing out. We saw a couple of meteors (one leaving an ion trail that persisted for 15 to 20 seconds!). I pointed out a satellite.

Will said later he enjoyed it.

And I must remember that Mosport is a very good place for stargazing. The skies are quite dark...
