This page is a list of various links for astronomy groups around Ottawa, as well as the main Twitter feed that has the latest updates, etc. I initially created this page for myself to stop having to chase links, and someone suggested I could share it with others, so here it is…just for background, I’m not only a member of the local chapter of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada, I also act as their RASC Ottawa Public Star Party Coordinator (2017-2019), and I try to attend special events whenever I can. I’m also on the Board of Directors for the AstroPontiac Initiative in Luskville.
Single source of info for all “events” — the shared Twitter feed!
