The Royal Astronomical Society of Canada Ottawa Centre has been serving astronomers in the National Capital Region since 1906.

In normal times, public meetings are held at the auditorium at the Canadian Aviation and Space Museum, Ottawa at 7.30 p.m. (usually) on the first Friday each month - see the schedule and map for directions. 

In COVID times, our meetings are conducted as Zoom webinars, details for which are given on the home page.

Ottawa RASC also host free public star parties but, for now, these too are on hold.
