Welcome to the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada – Winnipeg Centre


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.

Please be advised that due to Public Health restrictions our Observatory and Warm Room are CLOSED.
Our Observing Pad is OPEN but limited to 10 persons who are
socially distanced and observing all relevent health protocols.
