April Meeting Agenda:

- Paul Klauninger-The Galaxies of Spring
- Sharon Odell, Graduate student at Carleton U- Mary Grey & the Dominion Observatory
Presentation by Sharon Odell : Art History Graduate Studies,
School of Arts and Culture, Carleton University
The Dominion Observatory of Canada (1902-05) is located within the National Historic Site of the Central Experimental Farm, on the Natural Resource Canada campus. This architecture continues to possess great national, local, and social significance, due in part to the keen foresight of Mary Grey. Grey was the last astronomer who worked at the observatory, and this presentation will examine the motivation behind her advocacy for its preservation, as it became a part of her scientific career and later, museum curation.
All RASC monthly meetings are free and open to members and non-members alike. Refreshments will be available and this will be a wonderful opportunity to meet new friends who share a common interest and chat in a relaxed, stimulating and fun environment.
