CLUB DESCRIPTION

We are an all-volunteer society. As of April 2020, we are closed for Covid19, but we hope to reopen free telescope viewing at 7:30 on Saturday nights when social distancing is relaxed. Normally, we offer a planetarium program every Saturday night at 7:30 pm, Cost: $5.00 per adult, $3.00 for students, children under 6 free. Telescopes available afterwards, weather permitting. Special Interests Group (SIG) meets first Friday of the month at 7:00 pm. Our Monthly Members' meeting is held the third Friday of the month at 7:00 pm. We have a Night at the Observatory program available upon request, see website for details. We host an Astronomy Day program each October, free to the public. Sidewalk astronomy and special events also available upon request.
