Astronomy Club

Astronomy Club

Astronomy Club
Promotes an interest in the science and hobby of astronomy by providing a forum for like-minded people to interact and learn from each other and to share their expertise with those who would benefit from it.

What do we do?

The Astronomy Club does what the current members want to do.  We have had bake sales, created PowerPoints about astronomy topics for planetarium visitors, launched model rockets, taken a trip to the American Museum of Natural History, sponsored a movie on campus, learned to do a night sky presentation in the planetarium, and used telescopes to observe both the day and night skies.

What are our meetings like?
We meet in the Planetarium each week. After talking about any old and new business, we'll often watch a planetarium show or use the planetarium to learn the stars that are visible in the night sky.

How can you reach us?
