RAC holds a club meeting every month. Meetings usually begin with an educational program followed by a business session. Guests are always welcome.

Programs cover astronomy topics of interest and range from how to use a telescope, to astrophotography, to current topics in the science of astronomy. They often provide an excellent learning experience for people who are just getting started in astronomy.

The program is followed by a business session. Guests are welcome to remain for the business session but may not vote on motions.

Loaner equipment is available to members only and is normally checked out and returned at club meetings.

Meetings are held on the third Wednesday of every month from 7-9 PM. Until further notice and unless announced otherwise, the club meeting location is:
Room 1, Central Rappahannock Regional Library (CRRL), Fredericksburg Branch, 1201 Caroline Street, Fredericksburg, VA.

At the moment, RAC meetings are online only. A Zoom Video Conference link is sent to RAC Members. Guests may eMail the President to request a Zoom Video link. We look forward to returning to in person meetings when health conditions permit.
