International Observe the Moon Night

International Observe the Moon Night occurs annually in September or October, when the Moon is around first quarter ― a great phase for evening observing. A first-quarter Moon offers excellent viewing opportunities along the terminator (the line between night and day), where shadows enhance the Moon’s cratered landscape.

“Weather Permitting” the RASC Observatory south of the Telus World of Science will be open between 7:00PM ans 10:00PM for the public to have a look at the Moon through one of our telescopes. Some RASC members nay have their own telescopes on hand for the public to have a look through as well.
