Observing Sessions

Observing with telescope

We meet at the Courtenay Public library┬á 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.
