Dr. Heyl May 2014

Monthly Meetings and Speakers:

On the 2nd Friday of every month (except July and August) at 7 PM we have a meeting open to the public featuring a speaker on Zoom. Hopefully, as pandemic restrictions are gradually lifted, we will resume in person meetings at the Sechelt Library, Sechelt, BC. Donations are gratefully accepted at the door. Meetings commence with a brief business meeting followed by a lecture or educational class that is usually over by 9 pm. Tea and coffee are always served. Check out the listings of the upcoming speakers here. Click on the name of the speaker to go to the detailed posting for the event:

Public Viewing:

The Saturday night following our monthly meeting is the public viewing night at our SCC Observatory (weather permitting). Check out the Calendar page for dates and our Observatory page for more details on the SCC Observatory. The viewing will be posted on the web site and updated on the day of the viewing to confirm opening. Since we won’t open if weather conditions are unfavourable, always check the website before setting out to the observatory due to weather conditions.

Astro Cafe:

Every third Friday of the month  we meet informally at 7:30 pm at Tim Hortons in Sechelt and discuss astronomy news and developments. As soon as it is dark (weather permitting) we take our telescopes out to the seawall for public viewing of the night skies. Absolutely free! Everyone Welcome!

NOTE: Astro Cafe was suspended during the pandemic but will resume on 2021 August 13.


Member Viewing:

Every fourth Saturday evening is being set aside as a members only viewing session at the SCC Observatory. Members are permitted to bring guests. If the weather is inclement, then the session will be moved to an alternate date. Club members will be informed of plans through the regular club mail list.
