Monthly Meetings

Our meeting location changes from month to month. Please check the Meetup Group for the topic and location of upcoming meetings. The Events list at the right of this window gives direct links to information about upcoming events.

The Vancouver Centre of the R.A.S.C. meets at 7:30 p.m. on the second Thursday of each month.  Each meeting usually has a program which is a blend of current astronomical research and local amateur activities. The meeting is followed by an informal gathering for the three “c’s”; coffee, cookies and conversation. Visitors are welcome to attend most of our meetings, which are free.  New members and donations are always welcome.

The Vancouver Centre hosts or participates in many other events throughout the year.  See the Vancouver Astronomy Meetup Group for details.

SFU Observatory

RASC Vancouver Centre is pleased to share a video issued by the Communications Department of the Faculty of Science at Simon Fraser University. The video promotes the new Observatory, which endeavor has been supported by the members of RASC Vancouver Centre. We are looking forward to its completion and partnering with SFU in inspiring the next generation of observers.
