RBCM@Home Goes to the Dominion Astrophysical Observatory

The Dominion Astrophysical Observatory in Saanich, British Columbia, first caught starlight through the Plaskett telescope on May 6, 1918. It marked a significant moment in Canada’s history, as the 1.8-metre telescope was the world’s largest at that time. Learn more about the history of the Observatory and it's founder, John Stanley Plaskett.
