Please, note that this will be the first time, after the star party, that we will gather in our own brand new facility, and first ever using of the building for an event!

And to celebrate this and to celebrate our members, we will have a dinner party right after the AGM, right there at the observatory! But don’t worry, our new building has electric heating!

We would also like to extend our invitation to the friends of the Yukon Astronomical Society to come and celebrate together with us!

Please, bring a dish or snacks, salads of your choice and non-alcoholic drinks to share with others, and let’s make this event a great closure of the year! Observations will also be offered from the observatory after the AGM. Coffee, tea and hot chocolate will be available on-site. The event is child-friendly.

Directions: The RASC Yukon Observatory and Astronomy Interpretive Centre is located just a few minutes walk from the Takhini Hot Pools, at the end of Takhini Hot Springs Road. You find a trail immediately behind the hot pools. Take left direction on that trail, and walk until you see a blue parking lot sign on the left and an information board on the right. Walk up the hill on the trail by the information sign, and you find the observatory. It should be less than 5-10 minutes walk from the Takhini Hot Pools public parking lot.
