I’m based in Ottawa and involved in the local astronomy scene. I’m a member of the local chapter of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada, I act as their Public Star Party Coordinator, and I attend special events whenever I can. I’m also on the board for the AstroPontiac Initiative too.

I created this page mostly for myself to stop having to chase links around the internet, and someone suggested I could share it with others, so here it is — links to finding out about astronomy events in the Ottawa area.

Single source of info for all “events” — the shared Twitter feed!


The Royal Astronomical Society of Canada – Ottawa Centre has:
