RCA and Coriolis Youth Astronomy Club General Meeting & Presentation

Rose City Astronomers Monthly Meeting & Presentation


RCA is a membership organization. You need to pay annual dues to take full advantage of what the group offers, which is substantial. Annual membership is $30 for the whole family or $12 for just a student.

On the third Monday of the month the Rose City Astronomers has their monthly General Meeting and guest speaker. These are in-person at the OMSI auditorium and/or on Zoom. You need to check their website each month to see what there are doing that month. The in-person OMSI general meetings are open to the general public. Some months, especially if there is an in-person speaker, I (Joe Minato), will be attending the meeting and am happy to take up to five students. Contact me if you are interested. We can work out the details.
