NUMBER OF MEMBERS
Standley Lake Stargazing is a small club of volunteers that specializes in connecting beginner stargazers in and around Arvada, CO (just outside of Denver) with the wonderful world of astronomy. The two founding members, Aric Vyhmeister and Freddy Cruz are both aerospace engineers and use their backgrounds to actively promote STEM discussions at various community events.
Standley Lake Stargazing hosts star parties and other outreach events throughout the year, often partnering with local libraries and nature centers to share presentations about the space program, general astronomy and other science topics in conjunction with telescope viewing. We are often visited by first-time viewers, kids and their families, and the general curious public.
We welcome anyone with an interest of any experience level to join us, while we are primarily an education focused group, we do host smaller private viewing-only events for club members who prefer to attend more traditional star parties amongst fellow astronomers.
