The Thank You video below from Astronomy by the Bay will give you an idea of the scope of some of our 2016 Outreach Events~

As you can see from the chart below (compiled early January 2017), public and private Outreach Events in New Brunswick have been growing. This is due to the efforts of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada–New Brunswick Centre RASC.NB and the many volunteers in clubs throughout the Province.
