Monthly Meeting

RASC Halifax

In lieu of a face-to-face meeting, we are hosting Members' Meetings using Zoom. You do not require a Zoom account to join in but you are required to register for this meeting. Halifax Centre Members will be given priority for registration. The meeting is limited to 100 registrants - first come, first served. The meetings are being recorded and will become accessible via a link on this website.

Members’ Meeting Agenda:

  • Welcome & Members' Photo Montage
  • Special Presentation: Glenn Roberts How I Fell into a Black Hole - my journey to becoming an astronomy columnist Glenn Roberts will give an informal talk about his astronomical travels from a young child gazing at the night sky while lying atop a granite mountain in central Ontario back in the 1950s to his present pursuit as a syndicated astronomy columnist. He has had the fortunate opportunity to speak before numerous groups (boy/girl scouts, seniors organizations, public sessions in PEI National Park, school groups, private night sky tours, etc.) which have certainly contributed, not only to the enjoyment of teaching others about the night sky, but also fostered a desire in him to write about the night sky (which he has now been doing for over 30 years). Join us!
  • Paul Heath - Outreach/Inreach, Food for the Soul
  • Wayne Harasimovitch - Fireside Chat with Uncle Wayne (Book review: "Alien Oceans") Dave Chapman will present the What's up in February?
  • Paul Heath - Youth Activity
  • Judy Black - News from the Board
  • Astro-Chat. Following the Members' Meeting, there will be 60 minutes in which members can stay online for social time. An opportunity to catch up with each other, ask questions, etc. Join us! NOTE: This segment is informal and will not be recorded.
