Meetings and Events

                                                    

Monthly Meetings

If you are interested, why not attend a meeting or two? Regular meetings are held on the third Thursday of every month from September to June (no meetings in July or August), beginning at 7:00 P.M. in the LaMarsh Room of the Niagara Falls Public Library, 4848 Victoria Avenue at Morrison Street in Niagara Falls, Ont. (see map below) All are welcome!

Meetings usually include a lecture by a guest speaker, slide presentations by members, and chatting time over coffee and donuts. It's a good way to meet friends. Information about purchasing, or building your own, telescopes and other equipment is always available, with as many opinions as there are members present!

Monthly Public Star Nights

Every month on a Saturday night near the time of a First Quarter Moon, members set up their telescopes at Firemen's Park or Heartland Forest in Niagara Falls, Ont. or at Chippawa Creek Conservation area in Wainfleet for a night of observing for the general public. If you decide to attend a public star night, you need bring nothing but your curiosity.
