Cattle Point Named National Urban Star Park

Oak Bay’s Parks and Recreation Commission recommended that Council endorse Canada’s Royal Astronomical Society’s initiative, to designate Oak Bay’s Cattle Point as the newest and one of only about seven star parks in Canada.  Did you know that Cattle Point is considered by astronomers to be one of the best locations in Western Canada from which to study stars and constellations?  Who knew, and we are truly fortunate to have such a major asset right here on our front doorstep.  So get out your binoculars, spotting scopes, telescopes or the Night Sky App for your smart phone and venture down on a cloudless night to Cattle Point to stargaze.
