The Newsletter of the Ottawa Centre RASC
AstroNotes is the premiere source of information about activities and meetings in the Centre, members' observations, projects and happenings in the heavens. It is published monthly with the exceptions of June and August.
Subscription and Current Issue
Astronotes are available online to everyone. Check this page for the new issue at the beginning of each month.
Members can join an Astronotes Mailing List to receive an email notice when the new edition is available.
Past Issues Archive
Issues earlier than the current issue are archived here and are accessible to the public. Very early issues are gradually being prepared for online publication by a team of volunteers.
Information for Contributors
The AstroNotes newsletter wouldn't exist without contributions from members of the Ottawa Centre. Submissions are encouraged from every member, from descriptions of how you found the Andromeda Galaxy for the first time, to intricate explanations of how space-time might be reduced to quantum foam by black holes. We need your articles, observation experiences, sketches, images, "how to" articles, announcements, you name it. Electronic format is preferred, but contributions in any form are welcome – even handwritten.
We encourage you to include Web links in your article for the online version, but ask that you take reasonable measures to ensure your links are appropriate and long-lasting.
Submissions should be emailed to the Astronotes email address.
Early Web editions of AstroNotes were converted from the published paper copies, but may not contain exactly the same content. In particular, advertisements, and time-sensitive items such as notices and announcements of events are usually not included. The Ottawa Centre cannot be responsible for content referenced by any offsite links embedded within the articles.
