Welcome to Peachland, a community of ~5500 people on the western shore of Okanagan Lake, in BC’s Okanagan Valley!

Our Peachland site is run by Mark Force, a member of the Okanagan RASC. Mark’s teenage passion for astronomy was rekindled when he and his wife moved to Peachland from a big city 25 years ago. Dave Gamble, a fellow member of RECON and the RASC, got Mark interested in the RECON project a couple of years ago, and Mark has never looked back!

The first picture below shows Mark setting up his telescope for nighttime viewing at the Mount Kobau Star Party, and the second picture shows Mark excited at his first RECON event in Jan 2020!
