Learn More About The Contest

The Royal Astronomical Society of Canada is a national, non-profit, charitable organization devoted to the advancement of astronomy and related sciences. The Winnipeg Centre has been helping Manitobans enjoy our beautiful prairie skies since 1911.

While our monthly events and many outreach programs are open to the public, becoming a registered member of the RASC comes with a whole host of additional benefits. If you're interested in an astronomer helping you with your meeting or event, or if you just need help with a telescope decision or using your telescope, click on Contact Us above and we'd be happy to help!
