The RASC Halifax Centre has its own observatory in a dark-sky location near St.¬†Croix, just off Highway 101 between Halifax and Windsor. The St.¬†Croix Observatory (SCO) was built by the members themselves, supported by donations and a generous land-lease arrangement with Minas Energy. The site consists of a roll-off-roof observatory that has room for members to set up several telescopes, a warm room for breaks, and a toilet and store room facility.
