The Ontario Science Centre is the unofficial home of the RASC, Toronto Centre. We hold a number of events there, including our regular biweekly meetings and monthly solar observing. You can also find us at the Science Centre's evening star parties.

We hold meetings twice a month on Wednesday nights (once a month in the summer). Come out to hear professionals and members talk about their work, leading theories or how best to snag that really difficult target.

We hold our regular Solar Observing on the first Saturday of every month. While it's unsafe to look at the sun using a regular telescope, we've got the right equipment needed to safely observe our nearest star. Catch sunspots and solar flares on the Ontario Science Centre's TELUSCAPE Pad, right in front of the building.

For go/no go calls, check our home page.

And don't forget to check out what's going at the Science Centre on their website.

If traveling by TTC, you have a couple of options. You may take the Eglinton East bus (#34) and hop off at Don Mills Rd then cut through the parking lots. From the Bloor-Danforth subway, go to the Pape station, take the Don Mills bus (#25), and egress at St Dennis Dr, right in front of the Ontario Science Centre. If driving from the west, consider the Hwy 401 exit #373 at Leslie St to avoid the busy Don Valley Parkway (exit #375). If using the DVP from the south use the Eglinton Ave exit and travel eastbound to Don Mills Rd. If coming from the north, exit the DVP at Wynford, take Wynford east to Don Mills Rd. From Eglinton, south on Don Mills Rd to St Dennis Dr and turn east into the OSC driveway.
