The Lennox & Addington Dark Sky Viewing Area has installed physical distancing circles on the viewing platform. The circles are a minimum of 2 metres apart from one another and can incorporate tripod set-up for most cameras and telescopes. Each circle should also be large enough for 1-2 camping chairs (if visitors within the circle are from the same household).
In total, there are 8 white physical distancing circles painted on the concrete platform. Each have a reflective coating for extra visibility during overnight hours. There is also ample space for visitors to spread out on the surrounding grassy areas as well as in the expanded parking area if needed.
We ask that casual stargazers (ie. no telescopes or cameras) utilize the circles on the grassy areas in order to allow stargazers with tripods to set up on the concrete platform.
Please practice physical distancing by keeping 2 metres (6 feet) away from others while visiting. Sanitize your hands when entering and exiting the Dark Sky Viewing Area, and wear a mask while on the premises.
The Lennox & Addington Dark Sky Viewing Area is located at 7980 County Road 41, 37 km north of Napanee. For more details, about the site, please visit www.DarkSkyViewing.com.
