The Sunshine Coast Astronomy Club was formed on July 30, 2004 when a group of 16 enthusiasts met in Sandy Hook, a neighbourhood of Sechelt, on the Sunshine Coast in British Columbia, Canada. In 2007 president Bill Clark spearheaded the drive to take us into the RASC.
In 2013 we started construction of an observatory at the Sechelt Airport which opened on 27 June 2015: Check out our observatory on Our Observatory page and photos on the Photo Albums page. The Premier of BC sent us this congratulatory note: Sunshine Coast Centre’s new astronomical observatory
In June 2014 we celebrated our tenth anniversary at the General Assembly of the Royal Astronomical Society in Victoria, BC.
Our Centre currently has 68 members.
