Calling all Aspiring Astronomers!
OSC has the only fixed roof planetarium in the Okanagan. Make sure to visit us on the weekend and check out our planetarium shows at 11:30 am on Saturdays and Sundays! Come see us to see what is happening in the night sky!
A full schedule for our planetarium shows is listed and updated under events.
Check out the local chapter for RASC to learn more about Astronomy!
The Royal Astronomical Society of Canada (RASC) began as the Toronto Astronomical Club on December 1, 1868. The eight men who gathered to share their interest were not professional astronomers, just working-class citizens with a passion for astronomy.
The RASC invites you to observe the night sky with us. You may wish to attend a Star Party, visit a Dark Sky Preserve, learn about astrophotography, search for comets or prepare for the next eclipse. RASC centres host free astronomy activities for the public and volunteers willingly share their experience and knowledge with others, especially newcomers.
Join as a member to receive additional benefits, including our Observer's Handbook, Journal, and invitations to events. The RASC wants everyone to enjoy astronomy – please contact us to find out what’s offered in your community!
