The Calgary Astronomy Meetup Group Pages

We're a group of people with an interest in the night sky.

This Meetup Group is coordinated by the Calgary Centre of the
Royal Astronomical Society of Canada (RASC).
The Royal Astronomical Society of Canada - Your local astronomy club

Like most RASC Centres, we have a membership consisting of a mixture of amateur astronomers with all levels of interest and expertise as well as some professional astronomers.

Our mandate is the “advancement of astronomy and allied sciences” and that includes meeting to discuss astronomical subjects, helping each other with techniques, introducing newcomers to the hobby, and public education through presentations and “star parties”, etc.

Members of the Calgary Centre of the RASC enjoy regular meeting nights, featuring high quality speakers, numerous club observing and public outreach events (Hey! this is what this meetup site is all about), a telescope rental program for RASC members (rent cheaply before you buy one for yourself), and an observatory with its own library.

Please Join us for some Astro-Fun :-)
