CLUB DESCRIPTION

The purpose of the Astronomical Society of Kansas City (ASKC) is to provide a
community to support education and outreach to the Greater Kansas City area,
observing events and research opportunities for members and guests, and
resources for all interested in astronomy and allied sciences.

Since the 1930s, the ASKC has grown from a small group to one of the largest
astronomical societies in the country, with well over 500 members. Although
there are a few professional astronomers among us, most members are
amateur astronomers from widely diverse backgrounds with a unifying
interest in observing and discovering more about our universe.
