Riverside Astronomical Society—Outreach, star parties, dark sky site, and you!
Next monthly meeting of the Riverside Astronomical Society

Announcement: All RAS Public Events Postponed Until Further Notice

Our upcoming Star Parties, Meetings, and Outreach events are cancelled until further notice due to the stay at home and social distancing orders from the California Department of Health. We apologize for the inconvenience. We will resume normal activities as soon as possible.

For outreach events, star parties, and meetings in April and beyond, please stay tuned to this space for updates. You can also get updates on our Facebook page.

In the meantime, keep looking up and use this time to collimate your reflector, clean the objective of your refractor, work out that computer bug that's been bothering you, watch Betelgeuse, practice your astrophotography processing skills, clean and organize your eyepieces, or make a red screen cover for your laptop! See? There's still plenty to do!
