RASC —The Next Generation
Fiona and Keegan are two recent additions to the RASC Halifax family, both Youth members with a passion for the night sky. They will share with us stories about their interests, their gear, their successes, and their dreams.
BIO: Fiona Morris has lived in Springhill, Nova Scotia for all 16 years of her life. She attends Springhill Jr/Sr High School (currently Grade 10) and her favourite subjects are science and math. She has several hobbies, but astrophotography is her favourite. She has been interested in imaging the sky for almost 2 years and plans to continue for many more. Fiona was recently profiled in SkyNews magazine, and is a Youth member of RASC.
BIO: Keegan Oickle is a 16-year-old amateur astronomer from Milton, Nova Scotia. Like most astronomy enthusiasts, he’s been interested in astronomy and space ever since he was very young. His first astronomy-related memories include stargazing episodes during family canoe trips into the Kejimkujik back country. He took up astrophotography around three years ago and he’s been excited about it ever since. Keegan is a Youth member of RASC and serves on the RASC Youth Committee.
