About Us

About Us:

The Thunder Bay Centre of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada has been introducing the night sky to the residents of Thunder Bay since 1988. We are non-profit organization made up of volunteers dedicated to sharing and promoting Astronomy in Thunder Bay and the region. The Centre is fifty members strong with a wide diversity of areas of interest as well as knowledge and skill levels.
Nationally the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada has over four thousand members spread across 29 Canadian cities and will celebrate it’s 150th birthday in 2018. The Society with all its members offers many great publications and resources that help make events like today possible.

What We Do:

The Centre offers public and group presentations (like today’s event) with various activities, viewing and power point presentations.
From time to time we also bring in guest speakers into the region to talk about various topics on Astronomy and Space exploration.
In addition members will do one on one sessions with those people looking to learn how to use their telescope.
