Starfest 2009 will be held August 20 - 23, 2009.
The North York Astronomical Association invites you to attend its annual astronomy convention.
This year the theme is A Celebration of Astronomy as part of IYA.
Starfest is Canada's largest annual observing convention and star party. It attracts over nine hundred astronomy enthusiasts from Ontario, and neighbouring provinces and states. It has been ranked among the top star parties in North America by Sky and Telescope magazine.
Starfest offers a wide variety of observing-oriented activities that address the needs and interests of experienced observers and astrophotographers, as well as those of people new to the hobby. Activities include observing sessions, formal and informal slide presentations, workshops, commercial exhibits, and a children's program. You are invited to bring your telescope, astronomical images, and share your observing experiences with others.
