The Royal Astronomical Society of Canada, Victoria Centre hosts an annual star party each year. This 2002 event was held at the Victoria Fish and Game Association property, Malahat, BC, Canada, located near Victoria on southern Vancouver Island.

In this video shot by a local TV station, our star party organizer Rich Willis describes what a star party is, and what to expect if you attend one: solar viewing during the day, camping, interesting presentations, and of course night viewing of the stars, galaxies, planets and nebulae.

This standard definition NTSC video is 7 minutes long.
