Our SCC Observatory opened last year on 27 June. We’re rapidly closing in on our first anniversary of First Light. In honour of this, we’ll be having a First Anniversary¬†Starbeque for members and invited guests only on Saturday, July 2. This will be a pot luck starting at 6 pm and running until whenever we get tired of looking at the sky.

On the 30th. June 2004 the 16 members who formed the Sunshine Coast Astronomy Club paid $25.00 for a years membership. Four years later we joined the RASC as the Sunshine Coast Centre. This month we reached a total of 61 members, which is a huge membership for a community of our size compared to other RASC Centres across Canada. We have come a long way. Of that original 16 members, we have 8 still with us.
