Oak Hammock Marsh Astronomy Night – April 2019
April 18 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Oak Hammock Marsh hosts a monthly Astronomy Night on the third Thursday of every month. It features an indoor presentation in the theatre followed by an outdoor observation session from the rooftop. There is an entrance fee, but RASC members who show up with telescopes to help out will have the fee waived.

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.
