Hi Howard

Thanks so much for the telescope, my kids are thrilled. You were right the new telescopes are so much nicer than the old ones, they were worth the wait:)

 See you at the next Star Party!

Please note a change in location:

The RASC Vancouver public lecture for Thursday October 13 will be held at the Hennings Physics Building at UBC, instead of our usual location at the Space Centre. The lecture will begin at the normal time of 7:30PM.

For directions, please consult the UBC Wayfinding site:

The North Parkade and the UBC bus loop are about a five-minute walk from the Hennings Building.

Our speaker, who will be in Vancouver at the joint invitation of the RASC Vancouver and the UBC physics and astronomy department, will be:

Dr. Kaspar von Braun, NASA Exoplanet Science Institute, Caltech:

Transiting Extrasolar Planets - An Introduction and More

Extrasolar planets that transit their respective parent star provide a wealth of information on the physics and atmospheric properties of these planets, and they arguably represent the currently most dynamic field in all of astronomy. I give some background on what information can be learned from studying transiting exoplanetary systems, and how astronomers have managed to find more than 100 of them to date. Ground-based observations can tap into yet unexplored regions of parameters space among transiting systems. Finally, I illustrate some of the most interesting cases produced by a number of space missions that have made great contributions to our understanding of exoplanets, including Hubble, Spitzer, Kepler, Corot, and the Canadian Space Telescope MOST.

This is the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada - Vancouver  monthly meeting and is shared with the general public at no charge.
