SkyNews web extras: Exploring Old Man On His Back Ranch, SK

In the Jan/Feb 2016 edition of SkyNews Magazine, I wrote about Old Man On His Back Ranch, a Nature Conservancy of Canada area designated a Nocturnal Dark Sky Preserve by the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada (RASC.)

In addition to being perhaps the perfect dark sky observing location in Canada, the area is also a little remote. Just in case you don’t have the chance to explore this beautiful part of the country in-person, Google recently chronicled the area for its Street View app, through which you can now explore the preserve’s main observing site, virtually.

Here’s the link:
