May 2018 Monthly Meeting – Special Planetarium Event!
May 11, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
The Manitoba Museum Planetarium is celebrating their 50th lap around the Sun! They’ve graciously invited the Winnipeg RASC to an event that will include presentations of 50 years of shows, a reception with food and a cash bar, and a feature presentation by Alan Dyer. While the event is free, it is essential that you RSVP so that we can properly estimate needs.

Every second Friday of the month, we host our monthly meetings. They are free and open for all to attend, and are located in the Robert Schultz Lecture Theatre at St. John’s College in the U of M.
Meetings start at 7pm with our Beginner’s talk, which are designed for novice astronomers who are just beginning in the hobby. Then, we have updates on the latest astronomical news, and also discuss what is up to observe in the night sky that month. The main talk typically runs from 9pm to 10pm, where we have a variety of guest speakers who share their knowledge and expertise of astronomy.
Near the end of each summer, the Winnipeg RASC holds its annual Spruce Woods Star Party, held at Spruce Woods Provincial Park near Carberry, Manitoba. All current RASC members are welcome to join for a weekend of astronomy workshops and long nights of observing.
