The RASC offers its members seven observing programs to enhance their enjoyment of amateur astronomy. One of them, the Explore the Universe observing program for beginners, is open to anyone. These programs provide structured exploration of the night sky with the reward of earning a certificate of achievement. Finally, selected resources are provided to help the observer get the most out of an observing experience.

The RASC Observing Programs are supported and managed by the RASC Observing Committee.
