Events

The volatile nature of the cosmos also means that there are myriad astronomical events happening all year round, which can make for a busy calendar for the amateur astronomer! On top of our regular monthly meetings and observing events, we’ve compiled a list of interesting celestial occurrences so you can plan your observing ahead of time. For the largest of these, we typically arrange special observing events in an official capacity, which will be posted here.

Monthly Meetings

Held every second Friday of the month, our monthly meetings are free and open for all to attend. Join us at 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.

Many of our past meetings are available on our YouTube channel, if you'd like to get an idea of what the meetings are like, or just need to catch up on a talk you missed. Please see below for meeting videos that are available.


Members' Observing Nights

RASC members are invited to use the observatory at Glenlea on the Saturday night following the monthly meeting. Bring your telescope and set up on the observing pad to take advantage of the relatively dark skies and warm room facilities south of Winnipeg, or take a look through our Meade LX200 with live guidance and training from the RASC Observatory Director.

There were planets, moons, asteroids, and comets. But that was then. Now we have a vast menagerie of objects. What are trojan asteroids, centaurs, and trans-Neptunian objects? And is a minor planet old enough to vote yet?\n\nWe will have two breakout rooms over the break. One will be for socializing and the other will be for discussions on the minor planets.\n\nPlease remember to practice good meeting manners by staying on mute unless invited by the host to go off mute during the meeting for questions and answers, or socializing.\n\nAgenda:\n\nBeginners\u2019 Session \u2013 Bryan Stach \u2013 Observing the Perseid Meteor Shower\nAnnouncements \u2013 Dennis Lyons\nWhat\u2019s Up \u2013 Jay Anderson\nWhat\u2019s New \u2013 Dr. Michelle Boyce\n\n\nBreak\n\n\nMain Speaker: Robert (Bob) Stephens \u2013 Minor Planets\n\nBob Stephens has been an amateur astronomer for over 4 decades, joining the Riverside Astronomical Society in 1974.

In this period he discovered 18 binary asteroids.\n\nIn addition to his research on solar system objects, he likes to travel around the world to see solar eclipses. Bob has seen 18 Total Solar Eclipses, 3 Annular Solar Eclipses, 6 Partial Solar Eclipses, and 17 Total Lunar Eclipses.\n\nBob is the current Treasurer of the American Association of Variable Star Observers (AAVSO), and serves on the Board and am Treasurer of the Society for Astronomical Sciences, Inc., a 501(c)(3) organization whose purpose is to conduct seminars on Pro-Am collaborations. In 2011 he retired from the Board of Directors and as Treasurer of the Riverside Telescope Makers Conference, Inc. (RTMC) and was the past President and past Treasurer of the Riverside Astronomical Society. \n\nBob became a Full Member of the American Astronomical Society and a member of the Division for Planetary Sciences. Finally, he is President and CFO of MoreData!, Inc., an organization created to manage research grants from NASA and the National Science Foundation for research scientists. \n\nAsteroid (39890) Bobstephens was named by the International Astronomical Union. He also received the G. Bruce Blair Award from the Western Amateur Astronomers for many years of contribution to amateur astronomy. In 2009, the American Astronomical Society awarded Bob the Chambliss Award for Amateur Achievement. And in 2012, the Riverside Telescope Makers Conference awarded him the Clifford W. Holmes Award for major contributions in popularizing astronomy. Finally, in 2013, Bob received a Shoemaker Grant from the Planetary Society in support of their work at CS3.\n\nNASA wrote a profile about Bob\u2019s asteroid work at the Center for Solar System Studies.”,”thumbnails”:{“default”:{“url”:”https:\/\/i.ytimg.com\/vi\/gSkfDUGHcrA\/default.jpg”,”width”:120,”height”:90},”medium”:{“url”:”https:\/\/i.ytimg.com\/vi\/gSkfDUGHcrA\/mqdefault.jpg”,”width”:320,”height”:180},”high”:{“url”:”https:\/\/i.ytimg.com\/vi\/gSkfDUGHcrA\/hqdefault.jpg”,”width”:480,”height”:360}},”channelTitle”:”RASC Winnipeg”,”liveBroadcastContent”:”none”,”publishTime”:”2021-08-14T16:04:13Z”},”contentDetails”:{“duration”:”PT1H57M38S”,”dimension”:”2d”,”definition”:”sd”,”caption”:”false”,”licensedContent”:false,”regionRestriction”:{“blocked”:[“HK”,”ID”,”KR”,”MY”,”SG”,”TH”]},”contentRating”:{},”projection”:”rectangular”},”statistics”:{“viewCount”:”23″,”likeCount”:”1″,”dislikeCount”:”0″,”favoriteCount”:”0″,”commentCount”:”0″}},{“kind”:”youtube#searchResult”,”id”:”8MjNFE7ly2Y”,”snippet”:{“publishedAt”:”2021-08-14T14:31:18Z”,”channelId”:”UCI-5qhaejiUZHBnQdrbYDAA”,”title”:”RASC August 2021″,”description”:”The annual Perseid meteor shower peaked early this morning but will be active all week.

Members’ Observing Nights

RASC members are invited to use the observatory at Glenlea on the Saturday night following the monthly meeting. Bring your telescope and set up on the observing pad to take advantage of the relatively dark skies and warm room facilities south of Winnipeg, or take a look through our Meade LX200 with live guidance and training from the RASC Observatory Director.
