The Vancouver Centre of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada (RASC) provides critical support to the Trottier Observatory and the Starry Nights @ SFU outreach program. The Vancouver RASC has partnered with SFU for public outreach for many years. Their dedicated and experienced volunteers bring their personal gear to SFU star nights to share the views through their telescopes, and their knowledge of astronomy, with our guests – this extended group experience is an essential complement to the moments spent looking through the observatory telescope. The Vancouver RASC provided technical advice in the design of the observatory and the science plaza that it anchors, and provides ongoing assistance with observatory operations.
