Next Meeting

RASC June Meeting

Friday, June 17th 2016

Time to be determined


Members and their guests are welcomed to join us! If you have never been to the St. Croix Observatory, this will be your opportunity to get the tour - in daylight hours, no less! Enjoy the camaraderie of fellow astronomers and their guests, meet some new people, enjoy the fine fare offered at the BBQ, and delight in the night sky at St. Croix.

The Centre does not hold meetings in July and August

Dates of autumn meetings will be posted later in the summer.


About Monthly Meetings

Regular meetings open to everyone. Note that we have recently changed meeting rooms! They are held at Saint Mary's University in Room AT101 (Atrium Building). Meetings are held monthly (except July and August) beginning at 7:30 PM, normally on the third Friday.

A typical meeting consists of one or more feature talks. The main talks cover a variety of topics ranging from astronomical stamps to the latest advances in the space sciences. Shorter talks also cover a variety of topics such as: "what's up in the current sky", the latest astrophotographs by club members, or the unveiling of a new telescope.

Observing Night at Saint Croix Observatory

Members may be found observing at the Saint Croix Observatory on almost every clear, dark night. Once a month, we encourage members and their guests to congregate at SCO, at which time new members are particularly welcome. Upcoming Observing Nights are:
