About the Comox Valley Astronomy Club

The Comox Valley Astronomy Club is a non-profit society with the aim of promoting and enjoying amateur astronomy and related activities in the Comox Valley on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. We meet at the Courtenay Public library on the first Monday of every month (or 2nd Monday if the first is a holiday) from September through June.  When the weather is favourable and there is something to see, we will gather at 8pm onward for observation sessions. For a complete schedule of meetings and observation times please see below.

Observing Sessions

Observing with telescope

We meet at the Courtenay Public library  on the first Monday of every month. Meetings start at 6:00 pm and run for approximately two hours. There’s usually an informal get-together after the meetings.

Do you have an idea for a presentation at an upcoming meeting? Everyone is welcome to present on an astronomy subject during our monthly meeting. If you would like to present at our meeting, please contact us.

Due to the unpredictable weather on Vancouver Island, announcements of observing sessions are often somewhat “last minute”. You can keep up-to-date by checking this website, subscribing to our mailing list, or joining our Facebook group.
