About us

Founded in 1918, the Montreal Centre is part of a Canada-wide network of 28 Centres affiliated under the banner of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada.

Our members are hobbyists from all walks of life. Some members look at the sky through telescopes, others through binoculars, or with the unaided eye. Still others are armchair astronomers who don’t observe at all. What they do have in common, though, is an interest in astronomy.

Our Bellevue Observatory is located at the Morgan Arboretum in Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue.

We hold most of our public and members only events at this location. See Calendar section.
