Membership & Benefits

Although a membership is not required to attend any of our meetings or public events, the amount of additional items you will receive is well worth it.  Membership is open to anyone with an interest in astronomy and entitles you to the following benefits:

  • A copy of the annual Observer’s Handbook
  • Six issues of SkyNews magazine – the Canadian Magazine of Astronomy and Stargazing
  • Six issues of the Journal, the RASC’s official publication (in electronic format)
  • Member discounts on other RASC publications such as the Observer’s Calendar
  • Borrowing privileges from the local astronomy library

Current membership costs are $75 per year for Adult Membership and $45 per year for Youth Membership (under 21 or full time student under 25).  Family Membership is also available for $70 per year + $11 per adult and $5 per child.
