What's Up? "Stars: Size Matters" AND a telescope door prize!

"What's Up?" - RASC Vancouver's new segment for newcomers to astronomy, especially young ones!

This new series of presentations and activities is offered before the start of each regular RASC Vancouver monthly guest lecture, and is tailored to newcomers to astronomy, especially young ones! More experienced astronomy fans might even find something of interest ;)-.

The "What's Up?" for Thursday May 12 is:

"Stars: Size Matters" by Harvey Dueck, RASC Vancouver Council Webmaster.   

Starting this month, "What's Up?" will also feature a free door prize generously provided by our new sponsor Canadian Telescope. Anyone who attends "What's Up?" is eligible! The "What's Up?" door prize for May is an Alta-Azimuth reflector with a 114mm objective and focal length of 900mm, a great starter telescope!

"What's Up?" starts at 7:00PM, and finishes by 7:20PM, and is followed by our usual 7:30PM start time for our guest lecture (checkout the separate Meetup listing for the lecture: ). 

Astro-juice, coffee, and cookies will be served at the Southam Observatory after our guest lecture.

"What's Up?" is part of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada - Vancouver public outreach program, and is offered to the general public at no charge.

    I liked to see many children interested and making questions.

    Great door prize; interesting talk and ok for kids, but would have been great if it were more interactive... ie. involve kids in a volunteer capacity to demonstrate a fact or other points in the presentation

    A very good presentation by Harvey, the bicycle anology was a great tool for allowing the kids to comprehend the scale of our universe, and very nice to see the support of Canadian Telescope's contribution to our future astronomers.

    Two excellent lectures. But was difficult to have a meaningful talk at the cofeee room (room is too small for that purpose).

    It was great, but I wish more time had been made available for questions.
