The dark sky site of the Astronomical Society of Penang

In my previous posts, I mentioned that the Astronomical Society of Penang held its observing sessions in two locations – an observatory in Komtar in the centre of the main city in Penang, George Town. Observing here was aimed at going where the public is found, to show them the night sky, John Dobson-style. Other events were held at their dark sky site, such as the meteor observing session on 12/8/2017. I have pasted below details on the location of this observing plus some other information about the group, including their Facebook page (it appears most people use Facebook in Malaysia and so this is preferred medium for hosting websites) and details of an astronomy shop set up by two members in Penang “Perseid astronomy” – these two members also own the dark sky site and its observatory.
