Astronomy Cafe is an informal gathering of both RASC Victoria Centre members and non-members to socialize, drink coffee, eat cookies, and partake in both informal and formal presentations related to astronomy, space missions, and cosmology.

Astronomy Cafe is normally held every Monday evening in Fairfield, Victoria, BC, Canada except during summer months and when the Monday falls on a statutory holiday.

You are invited to share content you would like to present to upcoming online Astro Cafe meetings to our President Randy Enkin (president@victoria.rasc.ca). We will usually post your submitted content to our website and/or Youtube channel, unless you request otherwise. Zoom links to our online meetings are emailed to RASC Victoria Centre members a day or two ahead of time, so please join us!

See below for meeting room location and maps

  • Parking lot near 1335 Thurlow Road (navigate to here)
  • Street parking is also available on Thurlow if the lot is full
  • FGCA main building address: 1330 Fairfield Road. Limited parking available in front for those who cannot use stairs.

I want to inform you that the City will begin the process of replacing the centre’s front ramp next week! Beginning first thing Monday morning, the City will begin preparing the site for construction, including the building of a temporary ramp to access the building. For the most part, we should be able to use the front entrance with minimal interruptions. However, there will no longer be access to the stroller shelter during this process.

Unfortunately, there will be limited parking at the front of the building as the much of the area will be fenced off as a work site. There will be one spot reserved for folks with accessibility needs and one general parking spot reserved for community centre business. Please encourage staff, families, program users, and all visitors to use the street parking and street pick-up/drop zones. Also, there is plenty of parking in the school parking lot after 4pm.

The project is scheduled to take up to 3 months. I’m sorry for any inconvenience.
