2020 Nova East T-Shirts

The 2020 Nova East Planning Committee (NEPC) would like to thank John Read for his time and expertise in designing the logo.

John designed it twice - the original design for the Nova East camping event, and the second design for the virtual Nova East speaker series when the camping event was cancelled. 

John is a member of the RASC Halifax Centre who served on the Board of Directors and the NEPC. He is the author of 50 Things to See with a Telescope (Formac Publishing) along with other astronomy-related books and novels.

Thank you, John, for your invaluable contributions to Nova East!




The logo was based on the original theme for 2020 Nova East - March of the Planets. 

The original graphic depicted our solar system with the planets in relative positions to the Sun as they would be the weekend of August 21-23, 2020 - all but Mercury are to one side.

Then came COVID-19 and the cancellation of the Nova East camping weekend.

Nova East became a speaker series in lieu of a camping event, and the re-designed logo says it all - March of the Planets of Nova East 2020 was "COVID cancelled".

How to Order your T-shirt 
Because Nova East will not be on-site at Smiley's Provincial Park, a t-shirt bulk order as in years past is not feasible. The benefit of ordering for yourself is that you get to choose your colour preference and correct size along with delivery to your home. Prices will vary from one supplier to another. Here's how to order your shirt with the COVID-cancelled logo.

Note to the Ladies: If you want a slightly loose fit, you should order one size larger than your normal size.

Step 1: Right click on the t-shirt logo image above and download it to your computer. No need to contact any member of the Planning Committee for the logo.

Step 2: Determine a t-shirt supplier/printer you prefer to use. You have two choices:

Choice 1: Search for and use a t-shirt supplier/printer of your own choosing. 

Choice 2: John Read has provided a short video (https://youtu.be/BoAnwVV4t4A) on how to order a shirt with Vistaprint.
