A resident, Ryan Wong in Port Alberni has posted on facebook that they are going to make a live stream available straight from their telescope tonight.

He will be pointing his telescope to the sky after sundown (after 10PM) and streaming the view to anyone who tunes in.  Isn’t that cool! Have fun.
