About the Okanagan Centre of
Royal Astronomical Society

The Okanagan Centre of the R.A.S.C. was formerly known as the Okanagan Astronomical Society, with Kelowna and Vernon members deciding to join with the R.A.S.C. in 1995, and Penticton members in 2010.

 Members meet in Kelowna at the KLO Okanagan College Campus, in Vernon at the Okanagan Science Centre, and in Penticton at the Okanagan College Campus.

Centre meetings are monthly, excluding July and August. Members hold scheduled observing sessions on a monthly (or more frequent) basis, weather permitting.

We also have fun together such as at the Family Picnic at the Okanagan Observatory on Sept. 4, 2011.
Pictures can be found in our Zenfolio gallery here, and recipes from the picnic can be found here.

Okanagan Centre membership also includes:

  • Access to rental telescopes
  • Access to our extensive Astronomy related library
  • Our monthly newsletter, FOCUS
  • Sidewalk Astronomy
  • Email Discussion List
    (Learn about Okanagan specific events and issues through a friendly and informative email discussion group. To join contact list moderators Mikkel Steine mikkel@messier45.com or Guy Mackie guy.m@shaw.ca)
  • OC RASC Bylaws are here
