Would you like to know more about the night sky and what we can see? We welcome you to join us (via Zoom) once a month for a low intensity 30 minute presentation followed by Q&A.

As Earth completes a near circle around the Sun, we will cover a range of topics that will help you earn the ‘Explore the Universe’ certificate and pin from the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada. These include:

  • Finding your way around the sky
  • Moon, Sun, and planet cycles
  • Explore the Universe Certificate
  • Eyes, binoculars, telescope basics
  • Star clusters, craters on the Moon, comets
  • Rings of Saturn, Jupiter’s clouds and moons
  • Using the wonderful RASC Observer’s Handbook
