Join us online as we Explore the Universe together!

Did you know The RASC has observing certificate programs? If you see specific astronomical objects, you can receive a certificate and pin for your accomplishments!

Astronomy author and RASC Halifax member John Read, and RASC Outreach Coordinator Jenna Hinds will be hosting bi-weekly sessions to guide you through the Explore the Universe Observing Program. We'll explain how to find targets, give you tips on observing, and may even have some extra tricks up our sleeves depending on social distancing regulations.

Check here to find resources to help you complete the program, links to helpful videos, and anything else you might need! You do not need to be a RASC member to participate!

When?
3:30 - 4:30pm EDT
Every other Thursday, starting June 25th
 
What do I need?
Just a pair of binoculars and a notebook! Ones with 7x or more magnification are best, but you can see most objects in any binoculars.

Not available at 3:30 on Thursdays? Sessions will also be livestreamed to our YouTube channel. Subscribe to watch the videos whenever you'd like!

August 6th - Perseids and Deep Sky Objects

It's the Perseids Meteor Shower! This week we will be passing through a cloud of dust left behind by comet Swift-Tuttle, which means we'll have the chance to see shooting stars.

We have lots of Deep Sky Objects on the list for this week, which will be perfect targets to take a look for while you're out watching the meteor shower.

Who can attend: Everyone
Fee: Free
Registration: Zoom
Organized by: The Royal Astronomical Society of Canada
