North Shore Astronomy at the Silk Purse

The Vancouver Centre of the RASC has obtained a membership at the Silk Purse Arts Centre in West Vancouver. We are planning to use the Arts Centre as a site for local presentations of astronomy and public observing. In order to get this program started we have reserved the Arts Centre on Friday, July 17th for an informal meeting of our membership and any other members of the community interested in astronomy. Please join us to meet other members of the North Shore Community interested in astronomy and to talk about using the Silk Purse to advance a local interest in astronomy.

    C'était leur première rencontre de l'année. Ils ont élaboré un plan; conférence, observation des étoiles et de la lune, partage de connaissances et de photos, etc... L'année s'annonce intéressante.

    It was great getting the ball rolling on a North Shore Astronomy group. The weather co-opperated enough to get in some viewing from the field by the Silk Purse, and a visit to the second Cypress Bowl lookout yielded some amazing sights of Jupiter with a chance transition of IO complete with the shadow on Jupiter. Truely amazing!

    Great location, very friendly people for a nervous first timer to meet! I grabbed some stuff for the children's section at the North Vancouver City Library. I'll look around and see what else we have to offer in the way of getting more people interested in astronomy.
