RASC Niagara Centre Monthly Meetings

 

If you are interested, why not attend a meeting or two? Regular meetings are held on the second Monday of every month from September to June (no meetings in July or August). The RASC Niagara club meetings begin at 7:00pm in the LaMarsh Room of the Niagara Falls Public Library.  The Library is located at 4848 Victoria Avenue at Morrison Street, Niagara Falls. Please see the map below:

Royal Astronomical Society of Canada - Niagara Centre

The RASC Niagara Centre club meetings usually include a lecture by a guest speaker, slide presentations by members, and chatting time over coffee and donuts.  It's a great way to meet friends, and talk about the latest astronomy news! Information about purchasing a telescope and other astronomy equipment is always available from our knowledgable members. Information about the equipment needed for Astrophotography is also available, as many of our club members have a deep interest in this aspect of astronomy!

Members Nights at the CCCA Observatory are a great opportunity to stargaze under the darkest skies in the area! There are telescopes available for member use including a large 16" reflector housed in the clubs very own roll-off roof observatory!
