Nova East, Atlantic Canada's longest running Star Party
August 22 - August 24, 2014

2014 Guest Speaker: Dr. Rob Thacker of St. Mary's University Astronomy and Physics Department

Organized by the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada, Halifax Centre
and the Minas Astronomy Group

Location: Smileys Provincial Park, Hants County, Nova Scotia

Welcome to the home page of Nova East 2014, the 28th anniversary of Atlantic Canada's regional star party. Nova East was originally established as the camping and observing weekend for the Halifax Centre, and has grown to include participants from many other astronomy clubs in the Atlantic region, and a number of attendees from the northeastern United States as well.

Dr. Thacker will be discussing the next generation of astronomical instruments and what we might discover with them.

This year's grand prize is an eight inch SkyWatcher dobsonian telescope.

All participants come to enjoy jet black skies. A limiting magnitude of +6 is the norm.
Nova East occurs on the weekend of the new moon phase near the end of the summer.

Thanks to our donors.
