Information for members and those that are interested in becoming members.
Club Meetings are held the first Thursday of each month. The meetings
will be held at 19:30 (7:30 pm) at the Observatory or the Medicine Hat
College in winter months.
Members Nights are usually on the Friday closest to the New Moon. This
night is a time for members to discuss various subjects related to
astronomy and astrophysics. We will look at special objects or work on
club projects. We have watched astronomy or space related videos and
followed with discussions.
Open House nights
are held on the second Saturday of every month, weather permitting. In
the summer months, the best observation times are after 22:30. In
winter months, the nights can get cold but the cold air makes observing
better as the sky is clearer.
Members are expected to assist at open houses from time to time. There
also be other projects that members can assist with in the operation of
the club. Volunteering for Visitor Nights are a good way to learn more
