Jasper Dark Sky Festival 2014
Ground Control to Jasper National Park!
Chris Hadfield, Canada's first astronaut to walk in space, has accepted a new mission - to be the headline guest and principal speaker at Jasper Dark Sky Festival 2014.
Having spent 146 days steering the largest spaceship ever built through outer space, Hadfield is a unique Canadian to have been in such close proximity to the many stars and planets visible from Jasper National Park's Dark Sky Preserve - as officially accredited by the Royal Astronomical Society.
Already boasting an astronomy all-star lineup, the fourth annual Jasper Dark Sky Festival will see Chris Hadfield host a private event held at a secret Jasper location, on Saturday October 25 2014. Visitors will also be able to take a unique opportunity to meet and mingle with Hadfield during various events taking place over the course of the Festival.
