Regular Meetings

Regular Meetings are free and open to the public.

The RASC Edmonton Centre meets on the second Monday of each month, from September to June (if the second Monday is a holiday, then the meeting is on the third Monday).

Meetings are in the Margaret Zeidler Star Theatre at the TELUS World of Science – Edmonton, 11211 – 142 Street, Edmonton.

Meetings start at 19:30 and are typically two hours long.
If anyone wants time on the agenda, please email the President.

Regular Meetings are free and open to the public.


Council Meetings

Any Centre member is welcome to attend these meetings. Meetings are held in room 5-003 in the CCIS Building at the University of Alberta. Council meetings start at 19:15.


Astro Café

Astro Café is an informal get together of RASC Edmonton Centre members to talk and do astronomy. All Centre members are welcome. Some telescopes are often on hand, and we observe when conditions warrant. Each Café features a short presentation by a Centre member on a topic to stimulate discussion and learning among fellow members. Some Cafés (like How to Use a Telescope) are open to the public but mostly the Astro Café series is a member benefit. See the list of past and upcoming Astro Cafés here.


Observers Meetings (OBS)

Any member is welcome to attend these open meetings. Meetings are usually held at Boston Pizza in The Mayfield Common, NE of intersection of 170 Street and Stony Plain Road. Meetings start at 19:30. Changes to this schedule are posted on the Astro List by the Observing Group Director.


Blackfoot

Observing Nights are on the weekends closest to New Moon at the Blackfoot Dark Site.
