Mensōre (Welcome)!

The Ryukyu Astronomy Club (RAC) was founded 23 February 2002.

Located in Okinawa, Japan, RAC members enjoy subtropical weather and a view of more southerly objects from a vantage point of 26 degrees North latitude.

Here on our web site you will find copies of our newsletter, articles written by members, resources for download, and more.
