The Fundy Nebula~

Fog and mist Saturday night at the Fundy Park StarGaze 2017.

As sometimes happens at star parties, one evening was lost due to weather, and in this case Saturday evening was basically shut down due to fog/mist conditions which participants dubbed “The Fundy Nebula.” [photo by Paul Owen]. Time for laughs and socializing.
