Mushrow Astrolabes

On November 26, 1981, Wayne Mushrow discovered a very rare and working Portuguese mariner's astrolabe on a shipwreck just off the coast of Isle aux Morts. The year "1628" and "Y. Dyas" are stamped on the astrolabe, indicating that it was likely made by known astrolabe maker, Joas Dyas.

This astrolabe (which was more than 350 years old when found) was a discovery of great historical importance. It was the only one of its kind ever found in Canada, and one of only four of its kind found in the world. It is called the "Mushrow Astrolabe I" in Wayne’s honour.

In 1983, at the same site, Wayne found a French mariner's astrolabe stamped with the year "1617" and the name "Adrian Holland".

The Mushrow Astrolabes are the centerpiece of The Gulf Museum in Port Aux Basques, Newfoundland. These rare and significant finds are on display during the summer months and on display at the Rooms, St. John’s from September to June. They are both in mint condition and in working order. 

Wayne has lived in Upper Sackville Nova Scotia for the last thirteen years having moved from Port aux Basque to be closer to his daughters and grandchildren.
